Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a last-minute Christmas card inspiration. This Oh Deer Christmas Card is very simple to create and even though it does not look that way…trust me, it’s suitable for beginner cardmakers!
The glitter added to the card makes this Deer Christmas card extra elegant. Wanna join me in making the card?
Making the Top Card Panel
Start by trimming a piece of white cardstock to a rectangular shape. Then stamp some pine trees using different shades of green inkpads. For my card, I used water-solvable ink…I will explain later why. Next stamp the sentiment onto the card panel using a black ink pad.
Now stamp some deer onto white cardstock using a black ink pad. Let the images dry and then fussy cut them using a craft knife or scissors.
Adhere the deer onto the card panel using 3D Foam Squares Micro White.
Designer’s Tip: Tweezers are a great tool for picking up and precise placement of the 3D Foam Squares Micro White.
Making the Card Base
Adhere the Deer Christmas Card top card panel onto a green card panel and next onto a white card base. To adhere use the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
To add the glitter effect I used the Dual Tip Glue Pen. Simply apply some glue to the stamped trees and also as a layer of snow under the deer.
Then sprinkle white glitter over the card panel. The magic is that water solvent ink reacts to the glue of the Dual Tip Glue Pen and you will see the ink solve a little bit. This makes the white glitter adapt a little bit of color to the stamped tree. Isn’t that a wonderful effect? It gives your Deer Christmas Card such a lovely effect.
Now let the glue dry.
Making your adhesive shine is a technique called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside.
And voilá, your Deer Christmas card is ready.
Wishing you happy holiday crafting!
