I'm back on my most favorite Design Team! Yes, you guessed it...Doodle Pantry. I have really missed being a part of this team, so I am very happy to be back on board. There have been a lot of changes in the design team since I've been gone, so please take a look at some of the other member's blogs. We have some very talented ladies on this team.
My card is using the new Carousel Deer set. Everyone knows by now how much I love her carousel series. I did, however, choose to use the deer without the pole. I love to show how versatile her sets really are. Laurie always gives us the image without the pole, as well as with it, so you can choose how you want to use it. I first printed the solid blue and the printed blue digital papers that come with the set using white card stock. I used the solid print with my Silhouette Cameo and a snowflake spread cut file from Silhouette's online store. Even though some of these snowflakes were incredibly small, they cut beautifully. I mounted this on white card stock. Using the clear Sakura Gel Pen, I dotted the entire background to give it a nighttime snowy effect. I printed the deer on white card stock and colored it using Copic markers (deer - E53, E55, E57, E59; saddle & reins - BG72, BG75, BG78; leaves - G29; ribbons & flowers - R46). I then hand cut the deer image and popped it up onto the background using thin foam adhesive. I added mini gold half pearls onto all the places that had bells showing on the image. I really love the way this came out. I really wish I had super mini bells to put on there. I printed the sentiment from the same set and using two tag punches from Stampin' Up! I punched the sentiment and then the background from the designer paper I printed earlier. I distressed the sentiment with Not Quite Navy ink from Stampin' Up! and using the thin foam adhesive, mounted it onto the background. I then cut two angled strips to give a "faux" ribbon look and added a mini button. Here is a picture of the entire set that you will receive.
