ICS Blog Hop: Dashing Deer

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! For November, we are challenged to do a monochromatic card. We can use white or vanilla, and one other color. I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with! 

I chose one of the deer from the Dashing Deer stamp set as my focal point.  But I also used some elements from Rooted in Nature, and Merry Moose. I used Soft Suede ink and Vanilla & Suede card stock to complete the look. Some images were full strength ink, others I stamped off first. For the deer, I used the Stamparatus, so I could go over him a couple of times to make him really stand out.
Don't forget the inside, and the envelope!

I was a little worried about how this was going to turn out. But am happy to say, that it turned out just like I imagined it, which, in my card making experience, doesn't happen often!!

Thanks for joining me! Grab a cuppa' somthin', and hop on over to Joni's blog with me to see what she has to share with us!

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!


  1. That is gorgeous! How did you do the 'frame' it torn paper? I keep blowing up the picture.but can't figure out the magic.

    1. Yes, just took some printer paper a little larger than my cardstock piece and tore a frame in the middle. Used a little temp adhesive to hold the "frame" in place and then sponged around the middle. Love bringing back older techniques and making them new again!! Glad you like it!

  2. Gorgeous card...the variations of colour Ames amazing!

  3. Wonderful card design. Love the vintage look that Soft Suede creates

  4. Debi, I love that your technique gives the effect that you are peeking through a frosted window!

  5. LOVE the way you made that frame!! Great card!

  6. Gorgeous card! This color palette is so pretty on this card!
