It’s fun to make a Christmas Card in July. I pulled out the lovely Dashing Deer stamp set & Detailed Deer dies and paired them with a vellum tree from the In The Woods dies. I made this card during my Facebook Live today. You can watch the replay here.
Start with a Crumb Cake cs card base. Use a sponge dauber to add Crumb Cake ink to the edges of the card base including the inside. Cut a Merry Merlot cs panel, use the sponge dauber to add Crumb Cake ink to the edges, and then glue it to the card base. Cut a Very Vanilla cs panel and then stamp the sentiment from the Dashing Deer stamp set in Merry Merlot ink in the top right corner. Dry emboss the stamped Very Vanilla cs panel with the Subtle 3D embossing folder, use a sponge dauber to add Crumb Cake ink to the edges, and then glue it to the card base.
Die cut out a tree with the In The Woods dies from the Old Olive Perennial Essence 12 x 12 Vellum Cs. Use your Bone Folder to lightly curl out the leaves to give the tree dimension. Glue the tree to the card front – adding the glue between the curled out leaves.
Die cut out a deer with the Detailed Deer dies in Soft Suede cs. Use a sponge dauber to add Crumb Cake ink to the edges of the deer. Adhere the deer over the tree with Stampin’ Dimensionals and add a tiny bit of glue to the antlers to so they lay flat against the card front. Tie a bow out to the Braided Linen Trim and add it to the deer with a glue dot. Color a small pearl with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend and add it the deer as an eye. Add Pearls to the card front.
Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla cs inside panel to write your message. I used a sponge dauber to add Crumb Cake ink to the edges of the Very Vanilla cs panel. I also stamped the sentiment and the flower from the Dashing Deer stamp set in Merry Merlot ink to the inside panel and the back of the card to pull the theme through.
