- 4" x 5-1/4" from Basic White Cardstock
- 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" of birch tree trunks design from Peaceful Prints 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper, cut so the tree trunks are vertical on the vertical rectangle
- 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" from Sahara Sand Cardstock
- 3-1/8" x 4-3/8" from Adhesive Sheets
- 1-1/2" square from Real Red Cardstock
As you are ready to stamp using the Peaceful Deer Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the "sending love & peace this season" sentiment from the Peaceful Deer Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Sahara Sand Ink Pad. Stamp it on the vertical white rectangle so it is as close as possible to the right edge and is about 5/8" from the top edge.
Mount the laying down deer image from the Peaceful Deer Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Sahara Sand Ink Pad. Stamp it on the vertical white rectangle so it is about 3/8" from the bottom edge and the left side of the deer is about 1-1/2" from the left side of the cardstock.
Squeeze the lid of the Sahara Sand Ink Pad to get ink in the lid. Use a Blender Pen to pick up ink from the pad lid and color in the deer. Remember to stroke in one direction only or the cardstock will tear and pill up. Scribble on Grid Paper when you are done until no more color is coming off the Blender Pen.
Adhere the strip of birch trunks Peaceful Prints Designer Paper to the stamped and colored vertical white rectangle so it is evenly spaced top to bottom and the left edge is flush with the left edge of the white rectangle.
Peel the protective backing off of the Adhesive Sheets rectangle. Adhere the Adhesive Sheets rectangle to one side of the Sahara Sand rectangle. Be sure to leave the other protective backing in place for now.
Pick out the large, bare tree die from the Beautiful Trees Dies. Put it on top of the Sahara Sand rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the Sahara Sand (brownish gray) is facing up. Run through the machine a couple of times. Use the paper-piercing tip and the Die Brush Tip on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Make sure the protective backing for the Adhesive Sheet stays in place for now.
Peel off the protective backing on the back of the bare tree cut out. Adhere the tree cut out to the white rectangle so it is centered over the right edge of the designer paper strip.
Pick out the set of two birds die from the Beautiful Trees Dies. Put it on top of the Real Red square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the machine. Use the paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces if needed.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the bird cut outs to the tree cut out as shown.
Adhere the white rectangle to the front of the Real Red card.
