Jolly Christmas Woodland Embossing Folder Christmas Card

This weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is Fancy Folds!
I don't know why, but i immediately thought of this card. it is slightly different than i originally envisioned it, but it turned out pretty close! I was able to use a lot of my new goodies from the new Holiday Catalog that will be coming out soon! oooooh, so many fun things!

For this one, i embossed a piece of Whisper White using the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then cut it and mounted it on the new thicker Whisper White Paper. I had cut it and scored it in such a way that there are flaps on either side that overlap...

I cut the outer flap to the contour of the tree closest to the edge. 
I then used Crumb Cake and sponged the trees so they would stand out more. I used the single leaf from Lovely as a Tree to add leaves, enhanced them using a blender pen and Crumb Cake ink,  then used my Gorgeous Grunge spatter stamp and Gold ink to add some magical gold sparkle :o)

I stamped the deer from the Jolly Christmas set in Early Espresso, cut him out and adhered him, then lastly i added a Snowflake Element to finish it off. 

* I had a request for the dimensions of this ya go!*

the cardbase is cut to 10 x 5-1/2 inches
then scored at 3-1/2, then at 7-3/4
(in other words, if you put the 10 in. piece on your score board, you don't need to move it, just score at these two measurements without moving the piece)
at that point i put a separate tree embossed piece on each flap, then trimmed the larger flap along the contour of the tree.
these measurements should give you a 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 card that will fit in a standard envelope
