Hello, Happy Wednesday !
So this week I have another Christmas card using the Falling Snow Stencil from Simon Says Stamp,
It’s fast becoming one of my favourite Stencils in my collection and I can already tell a lot of my cards this Christmas are going to feature snow on them.
I’m also going to be using another of my Christmas favorites this year, which is the totally awesome Wplus9 Stag Trio die set, it’s an older die set but has so many uses, not just for Christmas cards, I had been trying to get this die set since last Christmas and finally got my hands on a set a month back as they are forever out of stock, seems they are a favourite for many.

I myself love the Stag Trio die set and have so many other ideas on how I want to use it but I mainly brought this die set thinking purely of my sister as she loves anything stag deco / stag related, so I thought it would make the perfect Christmas card for her.
So now on to the card details…
I started off by using my We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board to trim down some cardstock,
making an A2 top folding card out of Trophee Board White Linen 240 GSM Paper.

I then heat embossed my sentiment from Hero Arts Holiday Tree using Rangers Super Fine Black Embossing Powder, I then took the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil and some Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 White Embossing Paste and used this to cover my card front, once I had cleaned my palette knife and stencil I then set my card aside to dry.
While I was waiting for the embossing paste to dry I moved on to the die cutting,
Taking the largest stag in the Stag Trio die set, I die cut him out of some Gold Glimmer Paper, I also die cut two small banners using the Stampin’ Up!  Banners Framelits Die Set, one using some retired  Stampin' Up! Season Of Style Designer Series Paper Stack and the other using some retired My Mind's Eye Time For Tea Designer Paper.

And because I couldn't resist adding a bit more sparkle to my design I had to add a little sparkly gold star to the banners using Gold Glimmer Paper, again using the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.
By this time the embossing paste was well and truly dry so I could start assembling the card,
I popped the stag up on Small Foam Dots and placed him slightly over the sentiment, I then used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the two banners to the top left hand corner, layering them slightly over top of each other; I then adhered the star down with another Mini Glue Dot , placing the star on top of the two banners, super easy to make!
Im entering my design in at CAS-ual Fridays #144 - Tic Tac Toe
(Stenciling | Die Cutting | Embossing).

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
Ok so I’m sure some of you are asking why #BAMBI - DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW?
Well to start off with when I was making this card I thinking of that adorable scene in Bambi where it’s his first winter and he’s jumping around in the snow with Thumper, and then because it kind of looks like my stag is jumping / dashing through the snow - this then made me start singing, Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh, over the fields we go, laughing all the way…… you know how the song goes.
