Deer Oh Deer

Hello Blog Friends - it is nice to be able to sit at my desk for a little while this morning - my back is on the mend, not as quickly as I would like but slowly is better then nothing.

Today I am sharing a pair of cards I created for the first birthday of some very special twins in our family - these girls have been fostered by our nephews and are not only gorgeous but very loved and blessed to have a large family that adores them.

I have used the Deer Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Die D-Lites™ and love how it can be used to create original little deer - depending on cardstock and the embellishing that is done.

The first deer has been adhered to white cardstock that has been embossed only using the Elegant Ovals Nestabilities® and sponged using Imagine Crafts Featuring Tsukineko Radiant Neon ink in Electric Purple.  The card base has been cut/embossed using A2 Curved Matting Basics B Nestabilities® Card Creator Dies - I love this shape card!  The sentiment on both cards us stamped using  Imagine Crafts Featuring Tsukineko  Memento in Tuxedo Black.

The second card has been cut using the A2 Valiant Honor Nestabilities® Card Creator Dies and Authentique Paper.  

 I have used  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares for dimension ,and E-Z Runner on this card, the bling is from Want2Scrap©.  All Dies have been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
