Peaceful Deer – ‘Tis the Season

When this post goes live, it will be the last day of August. It doesn’t seem possible. The holidays will be coming right around the corner. I decided to create a card with the Peaceful Deer Bundle as the star of the show – well, maybe Rudolph is the star of the show! I also used the coordinating Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper (DSP). Peaceful Prints DSP is one of the amazing products you can choose for free with a minimum $50 order during Sale-a-bration. I hope you enjoy!

How to make the card (or scroll down to watch the video):

  1. Cut rectangle out of designer series paper (DSP) using the fourth largest Stitched Rectangle die.
  2. Sponge Coastal Cabana ink lightly on Basic White cardstock layer most of the way from top to bottom.
  3. Stamp trees in Garden green ink, stamping off on some of the smaller trees.
  4. Run embossing buddy (dryer sheet or Swiffer cloth may also work) over layer with trees stamped on it.
  5. Ink up snowflakes stamp with Versamark ink and stamp multiple times over trees being careful not to overlap snowflakes.
  6. Pour white embossing power over Versamark ink and tap off excess; use heat tool to set embossing powder.
  7. Stamp deer in black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and punch out.
  8. Punch antlers out using Early Espresso cardstock.
  9. Attach antler to the back of the deer’s head with liquid glue.
  10. Dot deer with a White Stampin’ Chalk Marker.
  11. Adhere deer on top of the white layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals, using either regular or mini dimensionals.
  12. Attach DSP frame on top of the white layer.
  13. Cut red ribbon, about 6 – 7 inches, and adhere to the back of each side of the card.
  14. Cut a second piece of ribbon and use it to tie a bow on the ribbon strip on the front of the DSP.
  15. Adhere DSP/white layer to the Garden Green cardstock layer.
  16. Attach Garden Green cardstock to the card front.
  17. Stamp greeting on a scrap of Basic White cardstock, die cut out using the smallest Season Labels die.
  18. Use dimensionals to attach greeting to the card.
  19. Stamp holly leaves on Old Olive cardstock with Garden Green ink.
  20. Die cut holly leaves with Christmas Cheer die and attach with mini dimensionals.
  21. For holly berries, they can either be punched out using the Deer Builder Punch or by using the strip of circles die from the Christmas Cheer die set. Punch out or die cut using Real Red cardstock. Another alternative would be to use the red rhinestones for the berries.
  22. Adhere berries to top of holly leaves with liquid glue.
  23. Put a red rhinestone on the deer’s nose, and then two on the greeting strip.
  24. Decorate the inside of the card as desired.
