VSNDEC14MINI2 Merry Christmas Deer
Hi Again Stampers!
This card was created for the VSNDEC14MINI2 Challenge for the mini Virtual Stamp Night “Frozen” at Splitcoaststampers. One of the rules is that you only have one hour to complete your project and you need to be a Splitcoaststampers Fan Club member (this helps to support the best website for stampers) :-) !
To create this card:
Ink the branch image from Beauty of the Season using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp repeatedly onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Darken the branches and color with berries with a Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencil.
Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to color the dear and tree line on the main deer stamp from the retired set, Noble Deer and stamp near the branches previously stamped in the above step.
Add a bit of shadows to the snow area with the Black Stampin’ Up! Watercolor pencil and dilute slightly with the AquaPainter™.
Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add the horizon line and additional pen lines for the fur on the deer.
Use the Big Shot™ to cut out the image with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ also cutting the same size oval from Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black cardstock. Cut both the Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black ovals in half and adhere behind the focal image.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base and add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. Layer onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim and create the points with the Hexagon Punch- repeat the steps again with Basic Black cardstock.
Add the sentiment along with the Rhinestones to finish off the card.
