Woodland Ornament Card

Hi folks!  I've been working on my Christmas cards and I'm sharing my Woodland Ornament card today.  I love making rustic things, whether it is cards, wreaths, pies, or soups.  Here are the supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such that I used on this card:

Christmas Sentiments stamp set (Impression Obsession)
Deer Trio die (Memory Box)
2012 Heirloom Ornament dies (Spellbinders)
Handmade Holiday 6x6 paper pad (Simple Stories)
Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive
Crystal Ice Glitter
Bricks and Bark embossing folder (Spellbinders)
Joy Foam Pads (Small)

I die cut the Deer Trio from kraft cardstock and then cut the largest deer away from the trio.  The antlers were colored with a brown Copic marker and I sponged some brown ink on his body.  I die cut the ornament from one of the patterned papers in the Handmade Holiday pad, wrapped some linen thread around the top, and adhered the deer to the ornament.  I added some white cardstock to the bottom, trimmed the edges, covered the white "snow" with the Art Institute glue and then sprinkled the Crystal Ice glitter on top.  You can see the glitter in the close-up picture below.

While I waited for the glue/glitter to dry, I ran some kraft cardstock through the Bricks and Bark embossing folder.  I used the Cuttlebug Highlights technique from Technique Junkies on the embossed piece and then distressed the edges.  I adhered that to some distressed artichoke cardstock and then adhered that to some more patterned paper from the Handmade Holiday pad.  I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of a kraft card base, adhered the papers to the card base, and wrapped some linen thread around the bottom.  The ornament was adhered to the embossed cardstock with some Joy foam pads.
