Merry Christmas!

Hello everybody!

Ok, here we are! - I am one from the new members of the design team at Christmas Card Throwdown.
Officially, we will start from January 2019, but we can not wait to introduce you to our creations. So we're starting right now with a post for the current challenge! - It's just a little reminder still have a fortnight to play with us!

The theme for the whole month of December is "Pick a Previous 2017 Challenge".  

I choose Embossed Impressions - Technique Challenge of August 2017 

and made this.

I covered a white panel with patterned vellum and a piece of dark grey cardstock - which I had dry embossed before and sponged with white ink. The transition from cardstock to vellum is masked with an orange ribbon from my Christmas stash. 
I die cut a circle from embossed cardstock and a deer from black glitter cardstock. Added black string and stuck all this to the panel, which I mounted then on a beige card base. 
The sentiment is stamped on a torn white piece of cardboard and sponged with gray ink.

The card goes with a little box - and when you open the box...'ll find this Advent wreath!
Here is a similar set that I made last year.

Except the fir twigs and the houses, all the embellishments are fussy cut and watercolored with felt-tip pens. The tea lights are embellished with Washi tape and golden string. They are glued with hot glue for better adhesion.
This small set went to a dear blogging friend as Advent gift.

Note the dark fir - it is cut from a matchbox to light the matches.

Thanks for stopping by - and have fun making cards!
