Leaping Deer

Christmas is right around the corner it seems.  Not too much longer now so I'm trying to kick it up a notch on making a few Christmas cards!

Scrapy Land Challenge starts up again today and our theme this time is Heat Embossing and use at least one or more dies!  Check out all the rules and regulations at the Scrapy Land blog and enter your creation for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from the Store!

I used the Leaping Deer Memory Box die and also Spellbinders Ovals.  Both of these can be found in the Scrapy Land store.  I used some very old CTMH silver embossing powder both on the deer and the oval.  The center of the smaller oval was completed using the Swiss Dots Embossing folder and the sentiment, from SU, was heat embossed.

Here's a list of all the brands of dies in the Scrap Land store.  Remember, to enter our challenge just use one of the brands that is listed - and do some heat embossing too!



Thanks for stopping by......now head on over to the Scrapy Land Challenge blog to enter your creation!

This is so elegant. A terrific use of that MB die (oh I have this one!!! YaY). It made a great design to have them staggered against the oval as you've done. This is just a wonderful card, and I hope I can find time to play at Scrappy Land. Hope the wkend is not too hectic and that you're all packed - ready for a fun trip. TFS & Big hugs.
