Elegant Copper Dashing Deer Cards

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.

Next, I embossed a 3-3/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Swirls & Curls Texture Impressions Folder.  I love how the pattern looks like a swirling blizzard of snow!  I added 3-3/4" x 3/4" strips of copper colored Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper to the top and the bottom edges of the embossed piece, using Tear & Tape for a secure hold.  I mounted the layer with more Tear & Tape to the card base.

Copper DeerI 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.

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)!

Two Cool—My second card uses the same basic elements on a horizontal layout.

Three Cool—I moved the sentiment above the deer on my third card.

Four Cool—For the last version, I went back to the vertical card and tried the de-bossed side of the Swirls & Curls pattern. 

Optional—The kit comes with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and a Stampin' Spritzer, so you could add some glimmer to the background.
