Winter Deer

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! This Hero Arts Winter Deer just makes me so darn happy! She is just the cutest. I love the detail and flexibility of the die set. It comes as 2 pieces. There is the deer unit and an outline. You can leave the positives and negatives all in tack or pop them out as I did here. Score one for me, I saved the antlers for another project. Yay!

Oh, and If you are a Black Friday shopper and pulled an all-nighter, or nearly all-nighter, kudos to you! I, too, am furiously gathering goods on this divine shopping day, but only in my slippers in front of the computer with hot java in hand!

PS: My apologies if you were one of those with multiple emails on that last post, oopsie! One small shift created a kerfuffle of issues. Finger crossed it is all resolved. Thanks for your patience.

This is a great project to use that random piece of cardstock you have laying on your desk. Yes, I know you have those too! This was an AWOL A2 panel I had floating around. With a palette knife I swiped Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Pacific Teal across the panel and set is aside to dry. Next, I die cut the deer from Hero Arts metallic cardstock.

Then I White Puff heat embossed a chipboard die cut of Joy. Three layers of this fun embossing powder created a snow like look. Next, I whipped several quick loops of red thread around the O and an antler to attach them together. Once the mousse panel was dry I adhered the deer with Ranger Collage Medium – which has super sticking power. Adhere panel to A2 folded card base and your foiled deer pops on that shimmery teal background!

Thank you for taking time with me today! Give yourself at least 5 minutes to squeeze in your Creative Bliss today. It’s a decision you won’t regret!

xo, Janette
