Addicted to CAS

It seems ages ago that I found myself short of a few Christmas cards to post off to friends. One of the designs made was entered in the challenge at ATCAS and luckily enough I won! 
Anyway as a result I'm here as their GD for today's latest challenge with this card.

It was inspired by the cue word -

I made this to cheer myself up when I had the flu, I thought it would be a simple make but my brain was a bit foggy and it took awhile before I was happy with the design.
On a small panel of white card, I stamped the top half of a Penny Black tree stamp in the top right with Versamark then heat embossed with white EP. Once cool, I stamped the tree again using Salty Ocean DI. When this was completely dry I added some of the same Salty Ocean with a bending brush to the top half of the panel. The deer was cut from dark brown card using an OI die, I tried black but it looked too stark.
The snowdrift in the bottom right was cut from the same card as the base and covered with Wink of Stella to give a subtle shimmer effect. The sentiment completes the panel, which I mounted on foam over a white base card.

So please pop over to the ATCAS blog for more frosty inspiration and then why not join in?

I'm joining in over at:-
