Fancy Deer Christmas Card for The Paper Players


Well... this is it! My last post as a guest designer at The Paper Players, (sad face). I want to thank each member of the design team for being supportive and encouraging during the last six months. It's been so much fun!!!

Okay, the challenge for the next two weeks is to create Fancy Holiday Projects. The theme title is Black Tie and it's hosted by the awesomely talented Nance.


My card features a silver embossed fancy deer image by Bo Bunny. I dug through my stash and found the black and silver foil paper by The Paper Studio that I bought for a "special occasion" and this is definitely one of those occasions. The deer and snowflake were heat embossed using VersaMark and silver embossing powder. The Good Greetings sentiment was stamped using Memento black ink onto the focal panel. Then I decided to add some color using Soft Sky cardstock. I added a layer and embossed a strip using the Fancy Fan embossing folder. The last detail was layering the snowflake on the scalloped circle and using a black glimmer brad in the center. All in all, this card was pretty simple to make but the embossed details and fancy paper really made this card shine.

We would love for you to join us for the last challenge of 2014 at The Paper Players. You have two weeks to play along and all paper crafting products are welcome. Just make your project and link your post to the gallery by NOON (PST) on Friday, December 19th. Click here to see the wonderful inspiration from the design team and thanks for stopping by!
