Hi Everyone, It’s been a couple of days since I posted and I wanted to touch base again. Today’s card is simple and elegant and was our project for class Monday night. Each person’s was a bit different as the various patterns of Wrapped In Plaid DSP made it distinctive.
Here’s the card:
Isn’t it elegant? I like that it has no sentiment on the front, just the simple beauty of the deer.
Here are the deets:
Thick Whisper White CS – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Wrapped In Plaid DSP – 4″ x 5 1/4″
Shaded Spruce – 3′ x 4 1/4′
Whisper White – 2 3/4″ x 4″ (cut 2 of these, one for stamping and die cutting the deer), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside.
* Adhere the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the Whisper White CS.
* Adhere the other Whisper White CS piece to the Shaded Spruce. Add dimensionals to the Shaded Spruce and adhere to the card.
* Stamp the deer in Cherry Cobbler. I used my stamparatus since sometimes I want to ink and stamp the deer again and this makes it so easy to do! Using your favorite die cutting machine, cut out the deer. Place on dimensions, including the legs. Yes, it does mean you have to cut dimensionals apart, but it’s worth it for the stability. Adhere the deer to the card.
* Make a bow and adhere with glue dots. For this card the bow is a non-SU! product, but linen thread could have been used and that would have looked great too.
For the inside I used a scrap from cutting down the 6 x 6 DSP (about 3/4′ x 4″) to the bottom of the additional pice of Whisper White. Stamp your favorite greeting and voila – done!
