Hello Everybody, for the December challenge of the Country View Challenges blog, I created a Christmas greeting card with rusty deer and Holiday Knit background by Tim Holtz.
For this card, I have found the inspiration in the picture of the die. In the picture that was attached to the die you can see this:
And here is my tutorial:
I cut out a rectangle (5,4x3,7 in) with a Sizzix Framelits Die, Rectangle (658610) from white cardstock.
Then I cut out four stitched flags with MFT die. This die had the perfect size to cover my white rectangle.
After I placed the Holiday Knit die in the middle of the flag stripe and cut out the pattern.
Then I adhered them to the white cardstock one after another.
I inked the edges of the card.
The deer was cut out from chipboard, painted brown, then I put a thick layer of rusty paste on the surface.
For the text, I used Vintage Photo embossing powder which looks like rust after heating.
I hope you like it!

P.S. This is a massage for Daria who asked me about the rusty paste I used. I'm sorry for the late answering but the cause of this was the Christmas. And otherwise, I'm not really sure that my aswer will be helpful because the rusty paste I used was a German one. The name is: Heike Schafer Rost Effekt and I added some extra cinnamon to this paste. I bought it in a Craft Market - Creative Expo in Luxembourg :-)
