The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Get your cranking arm and punching hand ready! Today’s card relies on both the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Deer Builder Punch.  The fabulous plaid deer was punched from Peaceful Prints paper, which is available as a Sale-A-Bration product.  It’s free with a $50 order.  But hurry, Sale-A-Bration ends September 30th.  And what about those sparkly Black Glitter Paper snowflakes? They are courtesy of the Stitched Snowflakes dies.  The fun embossed background was made using the Wintry 3D embossing folder.
