Welcome back to my blog!  Since the new Stampin' Up Holiday catalog is available for product purchases as of Sept. 5, I decided I'd take a couple of the pre-ordered stamp sets I have to make a couple of Christmas Greeting Cards.  This card is made with the Dashing Deer stamp set and Detailed Deer framelits.

I used Whisper White as the card stock for the card base which measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in. after folding.  I lined the card base with Smoky Slate card stock that measures 4 x 5 1/4 in.  On top of the Smoky Slate, I added a silver foil card stock that was embossed with the Swirls and Curls embossing folder.  I chose another piece of Smoky Slate card stock to make the oval that the deer is on and cut that out using the Big Shot and the Oval Stitched Framelit.  I took the deer stamp and added Versamark ink and heat embossed the deer in silver embossing powder which really brought out the design pattern on the deer body  I added the deer after placing him on dimensionals to the oval card stock.  In the background I added some trees in Whisper White Card stock from a framelit set that I do not have the name of.  Tried to make this card more monochromatic by using just the silver, white, and gray combination of colors.  The greeting "Happiest Christmas Wishes" is from the Dashing Deer stamp set which was heat embossed in silver embossing powder.   It's still not finished as I would like to add some Dazzling Diamond glitter to the trees.  Hope you like the design and thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my blog!
