Making Spirits Bright

Happy Monday Peeps!!

I have a fun card to share with you today!

I made this card using the sketch this week at The Paper Players

Buffalo Plaid is very trendy right now, and I was playing with the background stamp, trying a few color combos, I landed with these two knowing they would be great for a Christmas card.

 I used  whisper white and real red along with Black Memento Ink.

I die cut the deer using the Detailed Deer Thinlits with some of the Buffalo plaid in red.

The base of the card is Basic Black, followed with some whisper white and then the Black and White Buffalo Plaid.

 I added a piece of red and then a piece of burlap ribbon, for the side elements in the sketch.

I opted to use a circle instead of a square as shown in the sketch.
I embossed the circle scattered sequins embossing folder.
The deer is added to the circle with some dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Making Christmas Bright stamp set.
I added a few rhinestones to finish it up.

Thank you for stopping by today!
