That cute little deer? He's a cut out from an awesome piece of Designer Series Paper! :)
A quick bow made using two pieces of Cherry Cobbler Thick Baker's Twine and this card was done in less than five minutes!
Some Stampin' Tips:
- Black, White + a little pop of color. Sometimes that is all you need to keep a card simple and quick to make! In this instance, I stuck with black, white and grey for my background, then layered on my handcut deer and used Cherry Cobbler for the rest!
- Simple Layers. One of my favorite tricks is to layer on top of the card base rather than stamp directly on it -- it gives the card a little extra dimension and, if you make a mistake, you don't have to toss a whole card base!
- Fussy Cutting. That's how I got that cute little deer! It's the fancy crafting terminology for cutting out something by hand. There is actually a sheet of patterned paper filled with cute little deer just like this guy and I was dying to cut one out for a card!
