SOUS Challenge - Deer Diecut

Happy Holidays!!

The Stuck On U Sketches Diecut Challenge asked us to use a "deer" diecut. I knew this was a perfect embellishment to go with my Christmas photo from a few years ago.

Papers: My Mind's Eye, Echo Park, Lilybee, Bazzill, Neenah; Stickers: Echo Park, My Minds Eye; Diecuts: Cricut & SCAL: Unknown SVG of reindeer, Kerri Bradford title; Cricut Carts: Plantin Schoolbook, Going Places; Punches: Martha Stewart, EK Success, McGill; Unknown Vellum, Magenta Mesh paper, Unknown rhinestones & ribbon

I cut the reindeer from an old SVG file. I can't find the source, (sorry), but I know there are loads of deer/reindeer cuts out there. Then I stamped and embossed a snowflake on the diecut and decorated him with a punched wreath. I cut the title from a Kerri Bradford file. I love her stuff! I cut it with Neenah cardstock and I tell ya it cut like buttah on the Cricut! I cut the title three times and then glued them together. With such a delicate font, layering the cut gives it more depth. I thought the kraft cardstock was a bit too pale, so I inked it with some vintage photo distress and now I think it looks a little bit like wood. I love a happy accident!

I did lots of layering under the photo using different types of mediums: papers, vellum and mesh.

I want to thank everyone who visits my blog and those who leave such lovely comments. They mean the world to me.

Merry Christmas everyone and have a wonderful New Year!
