It just occurred to me that "dashing" describes this card in two ways: it's both dashing in its elegance and the deer is dashing across the card! Either way, you're going to love the gorgeous accents on this Dashing Deer Class-To-Go Kit card! We'll be creating 4 each of this design. It's quick & easy to assemble, focusing on the Detailed Deer Thinlits with only a touch of stamping.
Background Basics—I began by adding a 2" x 5-1/2" piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock along the left side of a Thick Whisper White card base.
Copper Deer—I die-cut the deer from Copper Foil Sheets with the Detailed Deer Thinlits. Because of the intricate die shape and since I was using foil, I recommend cutting it with the help of the Precision Base Plate. It truly makes all the difference in the world! If you have any trouble getting the die-cut out of the die, you can add a piece of wax paper between the foil and the die to help it release. Using a Precision Base Plate will also help eliminate, or at least reduce, the little bumps and indentations you might get from the die holes. You can see how awesome it works on my Smooth Foil Die-Cuts Tips Video.
I popped the copper deer up with Mini Dimensionals (which happen to be on sale during the World Card Making Day promotion!)
Finishing Touches—I adorned the deer with a little Cherry Cobbler flower embellishment, also die-cut with the Detailed Deer Thinlits. It's topped with a Pearl Jewel.
Bundle It & SAVE—Purchase the Dashing Deer stamp set and the Detailed Deer Thinlits together in a bundle to save 10%.
Sentiment Layer—I stamped the Dashing Deer sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a 2-1/2" x 3/4" piece of Whisper White, then fishtailed the end and popped up with Dimensionals (also on sale)!
Optional—The kit comes with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and a Stampin' Spritzer, so you could add some glimmer to the background.
