Deer dashing through the forest

I’ve been busy crafting but not doing much posting, but this Christmas card is one that I made a while a go.  So today I am posting this card.

I made this card using the Dashing Deer and the Winter Woods stamp set. These two stamp sets were the first sets I ordered from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! holiday catalogue.

This card has two panels mounted on a Merry Merlot card base.  One of the panels is from the Joyous Noel specialty DSP (designer series paper), matted on copper foil card stock. I rapped some Merry Merlot/copper reversible ribbon before I mounted the panel on to the card base. The other panel was made by sprinkling Mossy Green brusho on to some Shimmer White card stock which was then spritzed with water. Once the card stock was dry I then added some trees with a stamp from the Winter Woods stamp set in Early Espresso ink.  This panel was also matted on copper foil card.

The last bits of stamping needed for this card is the deer and the sentiment both of which are stamped on Whisper White card stock.  The dear was stamped in Soft Suede ink and the sentiment was stamped in VersaMark then heat embossed with copper embossing powder. I add extra emphasis to the label by stamping part of the stamp with Merry Merlot ink.  I then fussy cut out the part I wanted for the label.  The last detail on the card is a frosted epoxy droplet.
