We're kicking things off with out 3rd Mystery Designer Party.  There will be two prizes.  One person will receive the A Winterwonderland stamp set, an embossing powder, and one glitter.  A second commenter will receive the Flourishes Two stamp set, one embossing powder, and one glitter.  A Commenter will be selected to receive the winning prize from two of the blogs listed below. 

Snow One knows who the Mystery Designer is, so you'll want to visit each blog to leave a comment.  The winners will be announced on Nov 3 on the SNS blog, Facebook, and on each of our blogs:

Now on to my project.  I decided to create a tri-fold card with this stamp.  It sounds a little complicated, but it was pretty easy.  The hardest part was waiting for the glue to dry so I could move onto the next section.  (Patience isn't one of my virtues :-).)


To start off, stamp the image in the center of a 5"x 11" piece of cardstock.  You can cut off the excess from the top and bottom once you've stamped the image.  Stamp the image again so you can fussy cut out the deer and tree from the left side of the image and the cardinal and tree cluster on the right side.

Score the main image on each side of the image.  Place the deer/tree fussy cut out on the left side of the score line.  Lightly draw a line around the image and fussy cut out.  Repeat the process on the right side with the cardinal/trees.

Flip the entire card over (so the center panel with the stamped image is facing downward) and adhere the fussy cut pieces to the proper panels.  



Now it's time to decorate.  I used Copics to add color to the trees, cardinal, sky and bunny.  Amber Wheat and Dark Chocolate flock were used to add color to the deer body and Snow White flock was added to the deer's tail, as well as the bunny tail.

I used the new Diamond Dust chunky glitter to cover most of the snow on the trees and ground and Cloud Nine Velvet glitter on the cluster of trees in the center of the image.  I repeated the process on the left and right panels as well.
Finally, a belly band was created to keep the card closed.  My sentiment was stamped onto a Spellbinders Grommet Tag and was heat embossed with White Detail embossing powder.  You can also view the directions to this project in my SNS Art Gallery, here.


Now it's time to head on over to see what fabulous creation Donna has in store for you.  I know you won't be disappointed.  Be sure to visit each of the SNS Designers and leave a comment for your chance to win this gorgeous rubber stamp set.
