Deer Scene Bauble card

This card can be done with any Christmas scene dies you might have, I have used a deer scene die, but really any of them would look great, something like a hillside with trees, or a nativity scene, or a snowy village or cottage, anything like this would work.

This teal coloured one is the one I did the video on, but I had done a previous version with an ombre effect with pinks and foiling the background.  I did do craft foam between each layer, and it ended up being quite dimensional, so the one I used in the video I simplified quite a bit for teaching purposes, but it really depends on whether you are going to post it or not.

The background I have used a snowy stencil and have stencilled Deco foil transfer gel and then let it dry and then foiled it with Heidi Swapp teal foil with the minc machine. 

To make the bauble, I cut out 4 circle frames and 1 full circle using 4 consecutive dies from a die set, making each one larger than the one before, to give an almost tunnel effect. The last one is the background.  The first one was in white, one in craft foam, and the rest were in teal.  

I then cut out the deer scene also in white and glued the white circle frame over this and trimmed it around the frame.  Then glued this with onto a frame cut out of craft foam each remaining frame and backing together. 

The foiled background was trimmed down,  I then wrapped some gross grain ribbon onto the top of the background and down to where the bauble was to be glued. and stuck that down, then glued the background onto the card base with foam tape between to give some dimension.  Then the bauble was glued over the end of the ribbon.  A bow made out of the same ribbon to go on top of the bauble and that is the card finished.  I didn't want to spoil the clean look by putting a sentiment on it, I think it speaks Christmas all by itself.  

Here is the pink version that I had done as a prototype.
