When I first saw that the deer in the Merry Patterns stamp set was wearing a cable knit sweater I had to use the cable knit folder on my card.  Well of course, that is a no brainer right?  I think it looks amazing.

To create the look of an dark brown sweater I tapped Early Espresso Ink directly onto the folder, placed Very Vanilla card stock into the folder, and ran the product through the Big Shot.  Adding ink to folders prior to placing card stock into them allows the image to emboss in color.  Isn’t that fun!!!!

I wanted my deer to stand out.  To accomplish that I stamped him onto a Stitched circle.  Notice the sentiment “Merry Christmas”.  Because the stamp set is Photopolymer you can bend the stamps when you apply them to a block.  I love how the sentiment once it’s bent follows the stitch lines of the circle.  

Those Box Wood Wreath embellishments are just the cutest things.  I took a wreath apart by finding the end and uncoiling the wire. Then I cut it in half.  Next I wrapped the Mini Tinsel Trim around the foliage.  Finally I placed each half on either side of the stitched circle.  My deer is dressed for the season with a bow placed right at his neck.  


I think everyone is enjoying the close up pictures.  You can see the detail much better, right? 

Have a great day my friends. See ya tomorrow and Live Loved ~ Beverlee
