Cheapo Dies Scrolly Deer



Hello Blogging Friends!!


It is my turn on the Cheapo Dies Blog today and I have a Christmas card I made with the Exclusive Scrolly Deer die:



Here is my card:




Ingredients:


Green patterned paper
Brown patterned paper
White card stock
Brown paper
Brown ink
Tea Dye distress ink
Bundled Sage distress ink

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took a piece of green patterned paper, inked the edges with Bundled Sage distress ink and added that to the card. I took the solid brown paper and the Cheap Dies Scrolly Deer die and cut out the deer.  I added the deer to the brown patterned paper, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and then added it to the card.  I took the sentiment from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Sleigh Ride stamp set and some brown ink and stamped that onto more of the same brown patterned paper, inked the edges with Tea Dye distress ink and then added that to the card.

I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!

For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card.  I took some Glacier paper and inked the edges with Faded Jeans distress ink and added that to the card.  I took a piece of blue paper, Versamark and the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Dashing stamp set and stamped Snow in the middle of the card with Versamark and heat embossed that with Silver embossing powder.  I took the snowflake stamps from the Dashing stamp set and Versamark and stamped them over and under the word Snow and then heat embossed them with Silver embossing powder.  I took my distressing ruler and distressed the edges of the blue paper.  I took some Faded Jean distress oxide and my blending tool and rubbed some ink over the snowflakes and the word snow and around the paper.  I then took some water and spritzed the paper and let it dry.  Once it was dry I placed that onto the card.
