Hello Honey Bee friends! Have you ever began a card with a certain design in mind and then you go off in a totally different direction? Well, that’s what happened with my card today featuring the amazing Lovely Layers: Deer! This time, I’m happy that I just went with what evolved, and I love it!
First I die cut the main layers of the Lovely Layers: Deer from kraft colored cardstock. The other smaller detail dies are cut out with 80# Neenah. I used my Copic markers in various brown shades to color the deer. I used these markers: B15, B18, B23, B37, and B39. The layering guide, found in the product description, is very helpful for assembling your deer. I think these deer look so sweet!
Three of my go-to tools when assembling detailed dies like these are my reverse tweezers, my die release tool, and my Crystal Katana. These tools stay in front of me in my tool storage caddy at all times!
Next I created the A2 card base and the background layers. The papers in the Winter Wonder paper pad are so gorgeous and I chose two for my background layers. I die cut the tan snowflake paper with the largest Sweet Stacks: Rectangles and then with the Scattered Stars cover plate die. I glued that to my A2 white card base. I die cut the snowy hills with the hills die found in the Horizon Slimline Borders die set and glued them to the card base.
I added lots of pretty sparkle with some Star Dust Stickles. I love the subtle sparkle this gives! (I wish photos did a better job of showing the sparkle!)
I really love the look of this calm scene with the Lovely Layers: Deer and hope you do too! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful and crafty day!
