The background on this card is one I have been wanting to try out for a while and this week’s TGIF challenge was perfect for it.
I had the idea to create a background with the die cut flowers. It wasn’t as painstaking as it looks because the Detailed Deer die set comes with 4 of these flower dies so you get a whole batch of flowers in one run through the Big Shot machine.
On the other half of the card base I’ve added the beautiful Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper with it’s Copper accents and a border from the Tea Room Copper Vinyl stickers.
I hadn’t used my Seasonal Chums on this year’s Christmas cards yet and I though the cute little deer worked nicely with this card. It has been layered onto DSP punched with the Darling Label punch. This has then been layered onto Crumb Cake cardstock, then embossed with the corners punched using the same punch. The Tranquil Tide velvet ribbon feels beautiful and lush. It tied in with the DSP I had used.
As I didn’t want to detract from the die cut flowers, I tried not to cover a lot of it with the image and sentiment. I have added some pearls to the flower centres. These were coloured in with the Bronze Stampin’ Blend. Although the rest of the card is in Copper, the bronze matches well.
