You're a Deer


Happy Monday!! Hopefully everyone has a great week! The next two weeks will busy for me with class, thanksgiving, work and a project i have to get done over the next two weeks.... so i've been busy in the craft room getting all my projects done for the next 2 weeks so i can get the posts created and spend most of my time getting my project done!

Today i'm sharing a card i made for My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. I need to add some Christmas cards to my stash and i am loving the MFT Jingle All the Way set, so the challenge is a good excuse to use them!! Here's the sketch:

I was going to use pattern paper and had a panel cut out and two corners rounded, but eventually i decided not to use it. Instead i traced the panel with a black pen on my Kraft card base. I placed a MFT stencil over my card base and i pounced a ink applicator over the stencil with white ink. I placed a piece of scrap paper along my black edges so i would only have the stencil pattern inside my black lines.

Next i die cut and stamped the little deer from the Jingle All The Way stamp set. I colored him with Copic markers (yes, i splurged a few weeks ago and got a few more colors, browns and blues). I die cut a heart from pattern paper and then stamped and embossed the sentiment.

I cut a strip of stripped pattern paper and notched one end. I added a strip of kraft card stock to the center of the pattern paper and then i added it to my card base. I added the heart with foam tape, then the little deer. Last i added a couple plastic snowflakes with red sequins on top.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!!

  1. AHHHHHH!!! That deer is beyond cute! I just love this, Dana, the heart, the embossing, the stenciling - perfection :)

  2. Oh my goodness: I did the 'little girl clasping her hands with delight' move when I saw that adorable deer! You've created a marvelous background for him, with the stenciling, the tag, the heart and the snowflake. Serious adorableness happening here!
