Product Description

Kit contents:

1 – Oh Deer! Paper Packet (X7214B)
1 – Oh Deer! Complements (X7214C)
4 – cardstock sheets (1 Ruby, 1 Whisper, 2 White Daisy)
1 – Oh Deer! Assortment (Z4011)

The gorgeous Oh Deer! paper complements so nicely with the Woodland Wishes Thin Cuts Bundle. I think the reindeer in this set is the absolute cutest for Christmas! 
I started by cutting out the thin cut reindeers, doubled over and I got 4 cuts from 2 turns through my Big Shot machine. I cut out using 12" × 12" White Daisy Cardstock and got out my 5 1/2" × 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack.
I stamped the reindeer with Desert Sand Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and cut a 2.25 inch x 5.5 inch strip of Oh Deer! paper and the Zip strip from it (brown spots). I adhered them to the white card with Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive.
I used White Twine to thread the cute little jingle bells that I got from a $2 shop and wrapped it around the reindeers necks a few times and tied it in a bow cutting off the excess. I added 3-D Foam Tape to add dimension and stuck on my reindeer's. 

The next card I reversed the rotation so I cut my Oh Deer! paper shorter. I used one of the dark blue coloured jingle bells I had with the White Twine again (I wished I had the White & Gold Twine from the Oh Deer! set because its beautiful). I used Silver Shimmer Trim to edge it. 
I wanted to match the jingle bell as closely as I could with inks and the Peacock Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad was a bit too dark so I did a second generation stamping to lighten it up a bit. 

I also added the 3D foam tape to add dimension. 

I want to use this blog as an opportunity to wish all my customers, friends and anyone hopping through this blog a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS. 

My mum asked me this week to make her a Hanukkah card for her Jewish friend, Close to My Heart do sell Hanukkah stamp sets but I've never had an occasion to purchase them. So I used stamps and papers I already had to make her a card too. So HAPPY HANUKKAH if that is your tradition. 

Remember Workshops Your Way™ Oh Deer! Scrapbooking Kit is only available for a limited time so make sure you get it soon, so you don't miss out! Go to my website or your consultants website and order today.
