Memory Box Silver and Gold Deer


Hi blogging friendsFrom Millan.Net

The cards I am sharing today are quick and simple - and I made a silver and gold version.  I have almost finished my Christmas cards now - yay!  Whilst I am typing this, my cat Ruby is curled up beside me hugging the heat from the fan inside my laptop and it has turned cold and is pouring with rain outside - GREAT crafting weather!


I made a similar card last year and just changed things up a little plus the finished card size is smaller at 5" x 5" or 127mm x 127mm. The deer were diecut using silver glitter cardstock.  The sentiment is by Stampendous from their Christmas Wishes clear set (you can see the set HERE on the Stampendous website) and was stamped using Versamark Watermark ink and then heat-embossed using Ranger Fine Detail Silver embossing powder.  I trimmed the silver cardstock edges on the sides and bottom to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools.

I added the 2 x silver sequins using Glossy Accents and corner punched the bottom. I tied on the silver cord and added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying.  I added some Glossy Accents underneath the bow centre and put something heavy on it while it dried.  This stops the bow from loosening and holds it very firmly in place for mailing.

And now here is the gold version - except that I reversed the gold glitter cardstock in the die to make the deer face the other direction:


The sentiment is by Flourishes from their Christmas Wreath set.  I just discovered that Flourishes are no longer around - not sure why or when :-(

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Watermark ink and heat-set it using Ranger Fine Detail Gold embossing powder.  Again, I trimmed the gold glitter cardstock around the sentiment panel to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools, added gold sequins and the gold cord.
