Deer Family


I’m here with my last Crafts-U-Love DT post . It’s been a fun 15 months or so! Plus, I got to support one of the few bricks and mortar stores that I know of. I love internet shopping, but nothing beats seeing product in real life, does it. I love visiting craft stores when I can and it makes me sad to think that when I started crafting over a decade ago, there were four amazing stores within an hours’ drive of me. Only one, Crafts-U-Love, remains nowadays….

Anyway, as you may recall, this month, I received a couple of products by Marianne Design, the Tiny’s Deer Family die set* and the Classic Label die* . You can see what I made for my first post this month here.

I started by using the label die to create a grey die-cut panel. I simply ensured that my cutting plates weren’t aligned so that I only cut through part of the label die. I then lined up the die and cut part of it a second time from the opposite end of my grey cardstock to create a rectangular panel with that gorgeous die cut section on two sides. I brushed the edges with Distress Oxide Milled Lavender ink – difficult to see in my photos, but I promise you, it’s much easier to see in real life!

I then cut the little deer family from white cardstock and coloured them with various distress inks.

I stuck the deer to my rectangular base, adhered it to a card base and stamped a sentiment from the Julie Hickey Designs Essential Christmas Sentiments set  to finish off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!


Products marked with a ‘*’ were sent to me by Crafts-U-Love for this DT assignment.
