Christmas Deer

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Hero Arts Deer and Ornament Fancy Die. I fell in love with it when I made this card and wanted to create another with a watercolour background.

I started off by creating the watercolour background. I took a panel of Fabriano watercolour paper and applied clean water to it. I then added in pink and purples, aqua and blues to create an interesting background. I let the colours mix and then set aside to dry. Once dry, I messily added another layer to create more interest and depth of colour and set aside to dry again.
I took a panel of white cardstock and cut the inside portion of the Deer and Ornament Fancy Die (I removed the ornament part) on to it. The middle pieces were removed and then I added foam tape to the back. I added the watercolour piece to an A2 card base with tape runner and then added the deer panel on top.
I took the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the Off-Beat Holiday Messages set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was then cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape and tape runner. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels.

  1. I absolutely love this card and that background is so beautiful Michelle. I think I may have to get that die! I think it would be a good die to have to maybe do a small mass production.... and use up some background pieces that I have sitting around. It looks stunning with those soft purples and blues xx

  2. It's such a beautiful card and I love the superbly clean lines of it with just that pop of colour behind in non traditional Christmas colours. Beautifully done. xx
