Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Hello friends!
Welcome back to my second post for the day!
  I have a cute card to share for the upcoming holiday season using dies from the Dies R Us store and it was created to share on our Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  If you need inspiration ... be sure to check out our blog!
 This was so much fun to put together.  I just received my Dies R Us order so used several of those dies for today's fun winter scene.    The dies used are listed below and the technique I used for the trees, branch & fawn was die cutting multiple times and gluing them together to give a 'chipboard' affect.


After die cutting my focus 'Ice Crystal Frame', I brushed the center section with TH 'broken china' distress ink and reinserted it into the die cut.  On the back I added tiny pieces of scotch tape at the points to keep it together.

To add more texture to the plain blue card stock base, I used the same paint brush and 'pounced' the brush onto the card using the same TH distress ink.  Then I added a few pounces of white pearl paint and set aside to dry.  While my base card was drying I started creating my scene and stacking those elements that I wanted to use for dimension (trees, branch, fawn).
Here are the dies used on today's creation:

Jeanine's Art - Dies - Winter Classics - Winter Birds

Poppystamps - Dies - Cute Fawn
