Can You Case It? A Golden Deer


This weeks Can You Case It? challenge is a sketch challenge.  Because of the holidays it will be a three week challenge, so you have a lot of time to participate in the challenge.  🙂  I Love the simplicity of the sketch.  I paired this with a  Watercooler Wednesday color challenge.





I did  another Christmas card for this challenge.  I guess that tells you how behind I am on getting my Christmas cards finished and in the mail as I am still making Christmas cards.   I wanted to keep the sketch simple while incorporating a lot of different textures.  The star of this card is the deer from the Holiday Elements  die.  I watered down our Journey Craft glue, painted it on the deer, and then sprinkled the FSJ Sparkle Dust on it. I used the small star punch to punch gold stars.  The two circles, one of Whip Cream CS, and one with the Designer Vellum Prints, were cut using the Circle Die.  I tied the Journey Gold Thread, with the Mini Jingle, in a bow around the neck of the deer. I used the Journey Brushed Silver, Brushed Gold, and Dark Roast CS and ink.  The Silver CS was embossed with our Beach Towel embossing folder.




Here is a close up view of the sparkly deer.  🙂
