I can’t believe how fast time is flying by – Christmas is just around the corner – eep! Today I’m sharing the latest card I’ve made with Neat & Tangled’s Oh Deer stamp set – these little deers are just too cute. If you are interested please check out my other two cards Oh Deer and Oh Deer and Oak Leaf.
Image and Background
To start I stamped the darling deer onto Neenah Solar White, 110 lb, cardstock using MFT’s Extreme Black Ink and colored him with Copic markers. To add a bit more life to this little cutie I went over his eyes with a black Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
Next, I stamped Concord & 9th’s Plaid Background onto a piece of MFT’s Primitive Cream cardstock with Lawn Fawn’s Pizza Crust ink. This year I’m really loving this beautiful background stamp for my fall and holiday cards.
Last year I picked-up Spellbinders’ Layered Poinsettia die set and I’ve been itching to use it ever since. I love how beautifully the Poinsettia pairs with the adorable little deer on this card. I also used Sunny Studio’s Fancy Frames Circle Dies to create a lovely circle frame and Simon Says Stamp’s Holly Fanfare dies to add some holly leaves and berries to the bottom right side of the circle which helps balance the design.
This beautiful sentiment was created using the “Merry” word from Honey Bee Stamps’ Fa La La die set which I die cut out of Tonic Studios’ Scarlet Organza Stain Mirror cardstock and vellum. To complete the sentiment I stamped “Have a” and “Christmas” using Lawn Fawn’s Jalapeño ink.
What really makes this card pop is the finishing touches. I started by adding Studio Katia’s July Crystals to the center of the Poinsettia and over the holly berries. I also went over the first layer of Poinsettia leaves with Ranger’s Christmas Red Stickles and the second layer with Nuvo’s Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer pen. Lastly, I added a layer of Glossy Accents to the holly leaves. All these little touches really make the card.
I hope you’re having a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by and spending a little time with me today.
