Thanks for Lending a Hand - Simon Says Stamp Winter Card

Good morning! Stopping by today with a fun card I put together that all started with an alcohol ink background! I was playing one day with alcohol inks, and came up with several backgrounds that I set aside to use at a later time. I pulled this one out and started building a scene over it with lots of Simon Says Stamp Dies - I love the way it came out! Something so striking about black, white, and red, don't you think?

This alcohol ink background was created with just one color of alcohol ink - Poppyfield - and some rubbing alcohol to thin it down and help it move. I did it in a few layers, letting it dry between each layer. So fun what you can do with just one simple color of alcohol ink!

Next up, I die cut Birch Tree Window Die from white cardstock, then used Wonky Rectangles to trim that panel and layer over my alcohol ink background. I used Drifting Stitches Border Die and some Silver Glitter Cardstock to die cut a snowy ground at the bottom for my Retro Deer die cut from black cardstock to rest on.

I then die cut Big Thanks in it's two layers of black and white and adhered them together, then added a tiny heat embossed sentiment from the coordinating Big Thanks Words Stamp Set on a thin strip of black cardstock. The deer and sentiments were adhered with foam adhesive, everything else was adhered directly on the cardbase.
