Love You Deer-ly!

Hi and welcome, back! Today, I have another Valentine's Day card to share with you featuring Whimsy Stamps Forest Majesty Die Set. I just want to say... look, Mom, no stamping! I skipped the stamping and opted to print my sentiment on Vellum. As always, I have a quick video walking you through the process and a step-by-step pictorial for you below.


Cardbase 5.5" x 5.5" #110 Neenah Cardstock

Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red Cardstock

Kraft Cardstock

Using a heart die, create a frame with a 5" x 5" piece of white cardstock

Cut red cardstock to create a mat 5 3/8" x 5 3/8"

Cut white cardstock to 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" to create a background for gluing die-cut pieces in place

Spray Imagine Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray on frame; set aside to dry

Glue die-cut pieces together; set aside to dry

Using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink and blender tool apply ink to edges of die-cut trees and deer

Arrange pieces

Glue in place

Add mounting foam to the back of frame and center of trees

Add two trees to on the outer edge of heart; adhere deer using foam circles

Add hearts and birds using liquid adhesive

Add gold accents to the hearts using a Gelly Roll Gold pen

Print sentiment onto Vellum; add double-sided adhesive to the back and adhere to white cardstock strip

Use mounting foam to adhere the sentiment strip and add a heart to the end of the strip

Use liquid adhesive to add the layers to the cardbase

I love the way this card turned out! Let me know what you think in the comments below.
