- thin dark blue silicone rubber mat from Big Shot Embossing Mats
- large Whisper White rectangle
- Blizzard Thinlits
- clear Standard Cutting Pad
Run the sandwich through the Big Shot a couple of times.
Tip: This sandwich will let the detailed thinlit dry emboss the cardstock instead of cutting it.
Adhere the dry embossed white rectangle to the large Basic Black rectangle.
Cut a 4-1/2" piece of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the bottom of the layers so the ribbon is about 3/4" from the bottom edge. Flip the layers over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of the cardstock. Adhere it to the front of the Whisper White Thick card.
Pick out the large, open, standing deer with antlers thinlit from the Detailed Deer Thinlits. Place the small Basic Black rectangle on a Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the deer thinlit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush and Paper-Piercing Tool to remove the pieces.
Place the deer cut out on top of some Grid Paper to protect your work surface.
Shake the bottle of Frost White Shimmer Paint while the lid is on tight. Remove the lid and place it on some Grid Paper on your work surface open end up. Poke a Sponge Dauber down into the lid to pick up some of the shimmer paint. Rub the shimmer paint onto the antlers only of the deer cut out. Get more shimmer paint on the dauber as needed. Put the lid back on the bottle and shake again if necessary.
Adhere the painted deer cut out to the front of the card so it is centered over the ribbon.
As you are ready to stamp using the Merry Christmas To All 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 cross-hatch outlined label image from the Merry Christmas To All Set on Block H. Ink it up with the StazOn Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the larger white strip.
Mount the "Season's Greetings from..." sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All Set on Block G. Ink it up with the StazOn Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the stamped label image on the white strip.
Pick out the large label framelit from the Merry Christmas Thinlits. Place the stamped sentiment label on a Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on your Big Shot. Place the label framelit on top so it is centered over the image. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back of the sentiment label cut out to adhere it to the center of the ribbon on the front of the card.
Carefully peel up the protective backing on one side of the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet piece and adhere the adhesive sheet to one side of the remaining small strip of white cardstock. Leave the other protective backing piece in place.
Place the white cardstock piece on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot so that the adhesive side (with protective backing in place) is on the bottom.
Pick out three of the small, open snowflake thinlits from the Detailed Deer Thinlits. Place all three on top of the white strip on the Big Shot. Make sure they do NOT overlap. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush and Paper-Piercing Tool to remove the pieces.
Peel the protective backings off of the tiny snowflake cut outs and adhere them to the front of the card so one covers the solid area on the right side of the deer's antlers, one overlaps the left side of the deer's neck, and the final one overlaps the upper right corner of the sentiment label.
Carefully peel up 3 small rhinestones from a sheet of Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the centers of the snowflake cut outs.
Cut a 3" piece of the Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card at an angle on the left side of the sentiment label.
