Deer in the Headlights

 *This post is part of the November promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
Morning all, I hope you had a nice weekend. Lisa called my card for today 'The deer in the headlights card', so I decided to use that for the title of this blog post.....

This is such a simple card to make. I used a piece of cut & dry foam to apply embossing ink through The Clearing stencil from Imagination Crafts & set it aside to dry for a while............

When the embossing ink was dry, I masked off the trees & applied Ruby Gold Sparkle Medium through the stencil.............


I finished the card with gold liquid pearls, Hobby House pearl medallions & a piece of
seam binding ribbon.............
The Clearing       Sparkle Medium Ruby Gold    Liquid Pearls - Gold Pearl   Seam Binding Ribbon    Pearl Medallions     Emboss Ink Pads      Cut-n-Dry Foam   
Until next time, happy crafting.


  1. This is gorgeous, such an effective design and I love the sparkly reindeer.

  2. What a great idea Kirsten. I sometimes forget that the stencils can be used with inks too. A really lovely card.

  3. Nice use of the stencil to create such different effects.

  4. Great design and quite ethereal. Reminds me of a foggy night. I love how the deer stands out.

  5. Great idea to use the same stencil with 2 different mediums. The sparkly deer just shines out!

  7. I Like the Versamark used with the stencil and the sparkle deer, it's one of my favourite stencils, so elegant.x

  8. The sparkly deer really stands out against the dark background. Lovely! xx
