Oh Deer! Christmas Cards



Hi everyone, today I’m sharing another set of Christmas cards with you all! These are quite easy and quick cards to make so you can create a whole bunch of them in one go!


I started each project by die cutting a rectangle panel from green or brown card stock, each panel is two sizes smaller than my card base. Into these panels I die cut using one of the dies in the Crafter’s Companion “Interchangeable Woodland” dies, it only cuts out the trees and the mother deer, without cutting around it.

Next I die cut the young deer (which you can die cut with our without the circle shape around it, in this case I used the circle shape as well) from a lighter coloured card stock, also green or brown. Lastly I die cut the male deer in the lightest colour. All these dies come in the mentioned die set.



Time for adding my sentiment: before adding the previously created layers together I stamped one of the sentiments from the Stampin’Up stamp set “Flurry of Wishes” using VersaMark ink and heat embossing using Wow Opaque Vanilla White embossing powder. You create the best results if you use an anti-static powder tool on the paper before stamping.



Now I’m ready to put my cards together. For this I used a combination of cremes, browns and greens, which makes these cards also very well suitable for the (single) men in your life! The only thing you have to pay attention to is that the matting colour of the slightly larger rectangle panel is in contrast with the deer that is furthest away from the viewer.



I adhered all the layers together and onto the base card using liquid glue or one millimetre thick foam tape.


And that is it for today’s Christmas project! I wish you a creative day!
