Winter Scene

I love to create a CAS card and today I also got to use a snippet from my stash. Love that! This card will be entered into 3 challenges:
I have had this Crafter's Essential Winter Dies by Kat Scrappiness in my stash for several years now. This set is one of my favorites  - I love to use all 5 parts of it: the background with the swirls is perfect white on white, as well as, the snow hills with the stitching. Today's card used 4 of the dies:
To begin the CAS Winter Scene I started with the watercolored trees I had on my desk since last year (snippet). I had cut the trees from Ranger's Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper and dropped in watercolor with a wet on wet technique so that the colors would blend. Not sure at this point which watercolors I used, but any would work for this technique.
The deer was cut from several layers of white card stock and lastly gold glitter card stock. All adhered together for a nice sturdy element.
The sentiment was heat embossed in a pretty sparkly gold - Nuvo Glitter Embossing Powder Gold Enchantment. Want to talk about glittery? This embossing powder is amazing. The sentiment is from a Power Poppy stamp set called Cozy Cupfuls. A beautiful set I have had for many years now.
All in all a really simple but (I think) striking Clean and Simple card which I am happy to add to my Christmas stash. Thank you for joining me today and to the challenges for their inspiration!
