DASHING DEER

As you know, we do a Christmas Card at each Stamp Camp starting in August.  For September, we are working with the Dashing Deer bundle – page 9 of your holiday mini catalog.

08.25.18 D Deer rhinestoneThis Dashing Deer holiday card is done in Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler.  Although a very simple yet elegant card, the use of embossing folders adds so much.  The Swiss Dot (long retired) folder is used on the large circle, and the new Subtle Embossing Folder adds the linen texture to the front card layer.  I used the Stamparatus to stamp the deer.  Why?  Because I knew I would have a crisp image and could re-stamp if needed.  Dimensionals were used to pop up the background circle, and to elevate the deer.  Cutting the mini dimensionals in half allowed for stability to be added to the legs and antlers.  The die for the deer and the flowers make it so easy to produce this beautiful card.

In addition, Wink of Stella was added to the Cherry Cobbler scalloped circle as well as the flowers.  Wink of Stella was also used carefully on the antlers.  As ink is picked up by Wink of Stella, the process was a bit nerve-wracking.  If you look closely, you will find one or two splotches where the brush left its mark. 

There are 4 Thinlits of different deer as well as two nice floral corner Thinlits.  This is a fun bundle to play with.

Out next blog post will be of the Fall Leaf Bouquet.  Stay-tune as the goal is to post it shortly.

Don’t forget to let me know if you are coming to September Stamp Camp.  Blessings, Rosemary – (home)630/759-3089 – (cell)630/965-1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
