Sheena Douglas Christmas Deer diorama Christmas card

Hello everyone and welcome back to the ABC Christmas Challenge

The lovely  Lynda/Loopyloo is hour host this time and she has a great little prize for our winner.  For our November challenge, we are nearly at the end of the alphabet and we're looking forward to seeing your creations with the themes of:

'W'  for Winter Wonderland


'X' for Xtra Special

I just have one card to share that doubles for both our themes. The scene is a winter wonderland and is made with a diorama look that seems a bit special to me.

I cut, scored and folded the card into a diorama shape and cut the centre out using the Sheena Douglass Christmas Deer die. I then stamped and watercoloured the deer using Brushed Corduroy distress ink. I also inked the frame using Walnut Stain DI.

For the background, I inked the sky using a cloud stencil from Inkylicious and hand-cut a snowbank to go behind the deer.

To finish off I added a sprinkling of glitter and a couple of Papertrey Ink die cut holly leaves with Nuvo Drops for berries.

We had some fantastic entries last month and if you entered, don't forget to check on the ABC blog to see if you were our winner. 

We are just about to enter another national lockdown here which should just be for a month, and I'm hoping to retrieve my mojo and challenge myself to get all my Christmas cards finished. I hope you're all keeping well during these strange days and can spend some happy time with your craft supplies creating something to lift your spirits.

I'd like to go and play at

Thanks for stopping by.

This is indeed an 'Xtra Special' card - I have never tried a diorama card - I may have to Google the process. The deer in the scene is just great - love the added browns for detail. xx
