Fractured Ice

Hi everyone.  Time for a reminder card for the CAS Christmas March Challenge - Deer, being hosted by our very talented Susan!


It's also our 1st Birthday Party, so I hope you'll play along and celebrate this us!


The card above is very simple.  I recently got a new embossing powder called Fractured Ice.  I used it on the bottom of my tree / deer die-cut and also added some random patches in the sky with my Versamark and heat embossed with the same Fractured Ice embossing powder.  The sentiment is stamped in black to pick up the specks of black in the embossing powder.  Super easy and quick card.  The photo doesn't do the card justice ... the embossing powder is very pretty.

Here's a close-up that shows the glitter ...

Please check out the challenge blog to see the amazing reminder cards from our DT and from are wonderful Guest Deigner, Chrissie.

Gorgeous card Loll, perfect way to use the fractured ice ep. I bought some of this a while ago and have yet to play with it, this wintry deer setting is pretty as a picture, Cathy x

This is so lovely, Loll! The soft colors and the grainy texture of the embossing powder look fabulous with the pretty white deer die-cuts. I especially love the way you applied the powder in the sky. Fantastic job, my friend!

Amazing Christmas card, Loll. And a very happy 1st Anniversary to you at CAS Christmas, too!! This is such a pretty scene. I love the color of this EP, and imagine that it will sell out very quickly after everyone sees your gorgeous card. Love the flecks in it, and how it sparkles. Deer-lightful card! Bev

This truly has an icy aura, perfect for that herd of reindeer. I have got to get some "Fractured Ice". The random patches behind give a magical winter sky, Lots of WOW factor in this beauty xx
