Deer Friend at Miss Kate Cuttables

Before I share my post I have a new e-mail follower I’d like to welcome, desertlillyjo.  Thanks so much for joining us!

It’s my turn to post at Miss Kate Cuttables!  Before I continue, I just want to remind you to pick up your freebie of the day.  You can do that here.

Now let’s take a look at my card using the Girl Winter Deer cut file.  Miss Kate has a cute Boy Winter Deer, too.  Have you ever noticed that each year brings a new trend.  Some years it’s snowmen, other years it’s angels, Santas, snowflakes, etc.  This year it seems to be deer and that works for me as they are dear to me ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Deer Friend split easel card made with a Miss Kate Cuttables cut file and Stampin' Up products.

 

I saw this video on how to make what I’m calling a split easel card.  So easy to make, but I like the look.  I have a template for you on the Hints, Tips & Tutorials page.  I also have a cut file for the Silhouette Designer Edition V3 if you’d like it.

I used Stampin’ Up’s Winter Frost Designer Series Paper (retired).  I let that dictate the color of the card base, Island Indigo, and the mat under the image of Bermuda Bay.

I converted the cut file to print.  I left everything except her scarf the original colors.  The scarf was color-matched to the card stock.  She was traced and welded it to the smaller oval so her cute antlers extend out.  I applied Glossy Accents to her nose and Wink of Stella to her antlers with a liberal application of Shimmer Spritz.  She was added to the mat with dimensionals.

The greeting and sentiment were created using the Honey Script in Island Indigo.

The final touches included a few snowflakes, sequins and mini rhinestones with another layer of Shimmer Spritz over everything.
