AAA #98 - Creatures great or small

I can't believe we are already a few days into September and it is time for the next AAA Cards challenge - Creatures great or small!

I am not as far along with getting holiday cards made as I had hoped so I decided to make one for this challenge. This color layering stamp is great. You get such a realistic look with it.


I started out by stamping the deer on a white cardstock panel and then stamped the ornaments around his antlers. The strings for the ornaments are just drawn in with a black gel pen. I stamped the sentiment in gold metallic ink and heat embossed it with clear EP. I trimmed the panel down slightly and layered it on some gold foil paper and then onto a card base. The last touches I added were with a white gel pen to the ornaments and eye of the deer. The longest part of this was just figuring out which color inks I wanted to use :)


Supplies:
Stamps: HA - CL Deer and CL christmas tree 
Inks: Distress - antique linen; SU - creamy caramel, garden green; 
Lawn Fawn - walnut, doe; HA - neon red; Delicata gold 
Misc: DCWV patterened foil paperpad; Stamendous clear EP
I hope you are able to play along with us! Also, if you can, stop by the rest of the DT and check out there designs. They did an amazing job with this challenge :) Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Hello Cheryl, I just adore your card. We don't get deer coming through our yard at our new home. Loved seeing lil bambies playing, being carefully watched by their Mom. This is a fabulous Holiday card. The placement of the ornaments is so much fun too! Hugs, Tracie

  7. The deer looks like it was colored not just stamped! Very sweet. I love colorful ornaments and metalic sentiment too. What a clever idea to heat emboss the metalic ink!
    Thanks for sharing this pretty warm holiday card, Cheryl.
