Deers in the snow...

Happy Friday,

A simple sample today made with the scene card box adding a slightly larger frame to the front makes a really stand out creation.

For this version I made up the back of the box however I didn't add an aperture in the front and used that as the back.  I put a scene in the back which I made using white and sky blue pigment ink onto black card.

I added just one strip of the Deer scenes die set in white foam mounted inside and threw in a handful of shredded foil.

I made the frame using the Rectangular media plate frame and mounted this using the media plate die set which allowed me to mat the frame in silver and black.  I added acetate behind this and sealed the box to make the finished frame.

  1. Morning John, the dark background with the white stags and deer's really does create a beautiful effect, the shredded foil really gives a great effect of the snow etc. too. Yes I like it.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  2. Hello John, a very dramatic looking card, really like the effect of the dark card with silver. Have a good day everyone. Bx

  4. A beautiful card, John. I actually made a few Christmas cards yesterday using recycled cards. Haven't started the 'proper' ones yet.

  6. Beautiful card John. I really must start making some Christmas cards after all this inspiration we have had this week. Thank you. Take carexxx

  7. Dear John

    As I said to you at Doncaster - You are on fire! I was so inspired by your box tutorial yesterday I bought the box and deer set (Sunrise Crafts - the only ones who had any left!) I'll also be getting the townscape when it is back. Love 'em. I'm also thinking that my townscape stamp (the one I have your autograph on my personal 'tutorial' piece - which I look at every day) should be useful too. Thank you very much.

  14. Hi John. Such drama! Love it. I know black cards aren't to everyone's taste, but how else would you be able to create such atmosphere?


  15. I love the peaceful effect this card gives. Deer always seem to evoke peacefulness and these colors and dimension just feel like a wintry night in the woods.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
