Deer Christmas Greeting Card with Stamperia Sweet Christmas
Wow, has this week ever been busy! I finally got caught up on life after my lovely Thanksgiving break. Once all the chores were done, I had a chance to play with some of my new paper pretties. This Deer Christmas Greeting card has a wonderful Victorian feel to it. It’s made with Stamperia’s Sweet Christmas collection.
A little light distressing on the edges gave this card an aged, rustic feel. All the edges are sponged with Distress Victorian Velvet ink to amp up the color. Then I spritzed the edges with water. Finally, I spattered the whole base (not the image) with Hickory Smoke Distress Spray.
Need a good way to use up scraps of pretty paper? Cut a banner shape on the end then add them to your paper layers. To do this, first I fold my paper in half lengthwise. From the folded side of the paper, cut a 45 degree angle toward the bottom edge. These fishtail banners look great on a card, use up scraps and are quick and easy to make.
Deer Christmas: Pretty in Pink
I’m finding that I’m rather fond of pink this Christmas.
Festive greenery gives this card a botanical feel. I’ve layered lots of evergreen boughs in with my White Glitz Ribbon bow cluster.
Deer Christmas: A Peek Inside
For me, decorating the inside of a card is as much fun as decorating the outside.
Of course, there’s a pocket!
In the pocket, there’s a pretty little gift card holder.
And in the gift card holder, there’s a stamped sentiment and a chocolate treat. Otherwise, it would not be a Kathy by Design card! If you’re interested, you’ll find this card available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
It was relaxing and fun to make a card “just for me” . I love the way it turned out, and I hope it inspired you to get out your paper pretties and have a play.
Thanks for stopping by!
