It's time for a Technique themed challenge for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Lucinda, our host, has asked us to make a Mixed Media card. This is one of my favourite techniques, especially for Christmas cards!

Stamp the trees and snowflakes.
Stamp and white emboss background stamp.
Adhere die-cut trees and torn snow panel.
Colour die cut deer and stamp sentiment.
Ink edges of panel with gold ink. 
Adhere wooden snowflake and deer. 
Mount on white card base.

Stamps: Memory Box Christmas Tree; Stampendous Christmas Background; Avery Elle Snowflakes, W&W sentiment
Dies: Alexandra Renke and Dp Crafts
