Peaceful Deer Card Tutorial

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a special birthday card, a card I created using the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and the deer from the Peaceful Deer Bundle. I recently joined a group of demonstrators that create and share cards … this is the one that I shared with our group.

We also share instructions and a supply list. Nice thing about this group … I will be able to share cards with you that were created by my stampin’ demonstrator friends, so you’ll see different styles and ideas, and isn’t that what we all seek … ideas!

Measurements: 

  • Card Base: Basic White  5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored & folded at 4-1/4″ & 2” x 2” (greeting)
  • Cardstock #2: Night of Navy: 5-1/4” x 4” (Mat for Designer Paper) & 2” x 2” Circle
  • Cardstock #3 Scrap for deer
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Cardstock #4: Night of Navy: 5-1/4” x 4” (Inside Mat)
  • Cardstock #5: Basic White: 5-1/8” x 3-7/8” (Inside for writing)
  • Designer Paper Strip: 5″ x 1/2″ décor for inside

Instructions:

  • Stamp (It’s Your Day) greeting with Night of Navy Ink onto Basic White and Die Cut with Layering Circle Die
  • Die cut 2” x 2” Night of Navy piece with slightly larger Layer Circle Die … attach together.
  • Stamp resting deer with Momento Ink on a scrap piece of Basic White.
  • Color Deer with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut.
  • Use the Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends (Dark) and dye your White Seam Binding … Let Dry.
  • Layer the 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ Beauty of the Earth Designer paper over Night of Navy mat and secure.
  • Attach the ribbon that you have dyed to the bottom portion of the cardfront
  • Snip off the bottom of the greeting layers and tuck behind the ribbon.  I did not pop this up.
  • Using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals pop up the deer and position it on the left side of the greeting.
  • Using Stampin’ dimensionals, attach the assembled card front to your base.
  • For the inside of the card, adhere strip of designer paper on the left side of the Basic White.
  • Attach Basic White piece to your Night of Navy and secure to the inside flap of your card.

I hope this card tutorial inspires you to begin making all occasion cards. Can you image using all of your amazing designer papers for different looks … Have fun with this layout, it’s simple yet highlights the birthday greeting for the receiver of the card.
