I'm just popping in with a quick post today to show you another alternative for the layout I used in this weeks Heart of Christmas post. In the lead up to the holiday season, my intention is to make 2 of every card while I have everything on my craft desk and remember all the measurements!
I have kept the layout of the beautiful Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Paper exactly the same, but this time I've used last years favourite Detailed Deer Dies as the embellishment. I have cut the leaping deer twice, once in Crumb Cake card stock and the other in Copper Glimmer paper from last years retired Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper. I adhered the 2 die cuts together to make it more robust as I've popped him up on the stitched oval and left the antlers free.
I've dry embossed a piece of thick Very Vanilla card stock with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and die cut it on an angle with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. It provides a neutral background so all the detail of the deer can be appreciated. I added an eye with a 2mm rhinestone, coloured with an alcohol marker and a sweet bow in the retired vanilla and copper 1/8" Tea Room ribbon. The embellishment has been placed on the left this time as it suits the direction of the deer and the die cut greeting from the Jolly Season Dies is on the right. This version is simpler and quicker for creating multiples as it doesn't have the stamping, colouring and fussy cutting but still has lots of wow factor.

I also want to let you know about the Designer Paper Pomotion running now until 30 September. When you buy 3 packs, you get the 4th FREE. Here is the list of designs you have to choose from:
The very popular Magnolia Lane, Bird Ballad and Come Sail Away are included and even the more expensive Pressed Petals Specialty pack. If the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP is on your list then make sure you add it to your order as the 4th item, so you will get the most expensive pack for FREE! Why not get together with a friend and share the cost and the free pack too! Pressed Petals is a lighter weight paper, so perfect for layering without bulk. I used it on this card and compendium I created.
You can see all of the papers on sale in a special section in my Online Store or check out this video from Stampin' Up! that shows you both sides of each design in full 12 x 12 size for each pack.
