Heart of Christmas - Week 2

Hello everyone and welcome to Week 2 of our Heart of Christmas by the Art with Heart team.

When I was making last week's Heart of Christmas card using the Dashing Deer stamp set, I stamped and embossed two deer's, to see which one I preferred on that card. I decided to use the left over one to create tonight's card, and here it is.

I heat embossed gold onto gold foil for the deer. I added him with glue dots, it adds a little dimension, to a small card from the Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack that I cropped with a rectangle stitched die. I then backed this with a piece of Whisper White that I ran through the Subtle 3D embossing folder.

I made a frame using two of the rectangle stitched dies and added this using the leftover strips of dimensionals. These strips can be cut to size, so never throw that sheet out once you have used up the individual dimensionals - they are so handy.

I heat embossed the sentiment with gold onto Garden Green cardstock. The sentiment is on one stamp, but after stamping, I just trimmed it down so I could get the two pieces that you see on the card. I die-cut three of the flowers from the Detailed Deer dies in Garden Green and to each of the centres I added a clear rhinestone that I coloured with my Stampin' Blends in dark So Saffron. Now they look like gold rhinestones!

On the inside of the card I matted a piece of Whisper White onto Garden Green cardstock. In the Memories & More card pack from Magnolia Lane is a selection of stickers, so I chose one of the border ones and a flourish die-cut from the Detailed Deer dies to decorate the bottom of the panel. I punched out a really tiny circle of gold foil for the centre of the flower using a retired hand held punch.
