Welcome to our NC Demo’s November Blog Hop! I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. And I’m sure many of you are already off and running into Christmas, lol! I’m always one of those people who just have to wait until Thanksgiving is over before doing anything Christmas related. So, now I’m ready to jump in.
I’m glad to be able to get back to sharing with you all. It has been several months and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to participate in this one. But, luckily I had a little time to whip something up. I held my monthly stamp class yesterday and we made this card using the Dashing Deer stamp set. This set can be found in our 2018 Holiday CatalogI was inspired from a card I saw on Pinterest, made by Quinn Decamera. I changed the color scheme and used different ribbon on my version. I love Navy and Silver, I think it’s one of my favorite combos!
I stamped the trees from Winter Woods across the width of the WW cardstock, using the Stamparatus to ensure I had even spacing. Then the sentiment was stamped at the bottom. I ran the stamped cardstock through the Softly Falling embossing folder to give the impression of snow falling. WW Polka Dot Tulle ribbon was wrapped around the cardstock and tied in a knot, then that was adhered to a piece of Gray Granite CS and everything was attached to the Night of Navy card base. I cut the deer on Silver Foil and used Dimensionals to mount it to the card front. And for a little extra bling, I added the Basic Rhinestones.
I wanted to also create a little gift box to go along with the card so I grabbed a Mini Pizza box and carried the same design over to that. I love these boxes, they are so versatile and fun to work with. Once I stamped the trees, I also embossed the box using the Softly Falling embossing folder. I really gives added texture to the top of the box. I used one of the smaller deer thinlets and adhered him (or her!) to the tied Polka Dot Tulle using a glue dot. You can fill the box with a gift card, candies, jewelry, the possibilities are endless!
