And now on to our regularly scheduled program: Christmas Fridays in July!!
Today's card was inspired by a card made by Stampin' Up Artisan emeritus, Chantel de Kaste, from the Netherlands. I started by embossing a 4" by 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Card Stock with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder. I adhered this to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Next, I cut a 2-1/4" square of the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and adhered it directly to the card. Then, I used the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set to cut a square of Whisper White Card Stock and used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere this to the card. I used the 2" Circle Punch to punch a bit of Shaded Spruce Card Stock and adhered that to the stitched square piece. NOTE: It's offset from the center of the square...on purpose!
I cut a 1/2" strip of another piece of Under the Mistletoe DSP and adhered that across the stitched square piece. I stamped a greeting from the "Cookie Cutter Christmas" stamp set in Early Espresso Ink onto a 1/2" strip of Whisper White and flagged the end with my Paper Snips and adhered this to the card. I cut a bit of Leaf Trim and adhered this to the card, too.
Next, I stamped the deer from "Cookie Cutter Christmas" in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. I colored him with Light & Dark Crumb Cake and Light & Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends. I punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I added the deer to the card with a combination of regular and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
Finally, I added some Gold Faceted Gems and some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little bling. Isn't this a fun card?! We'll be making this card in an upcoming Christmas card stamp-a-stack session. There's still time to sign up, so contact me to reserve a spot. If you're not local to me, ask about a long distance option.
