I hope everyone had a nice weekend. The first weekend of fall in the Northeast was pleasantly comfortable. It was nice to have weather in the 70s with very little humidity compared to the 90 and above with lots of humidity we’ve been having all summer long.
With the holidays around the corner, I thought I would play with my Dashing Deer Stamp Set and made this pretty card. I used Mossy Meadow for the base and a layer of Merry Merlot embossed with the Softly Fallen Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The whisper white layer was embossed with the new Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The pretty deer was stamped with Merry Merlot Classic Ink, cut out with the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies and adhered to the corrugated whisper white layer with multipurpose liquid glue. The little flower around his neck is Merry Merlot glimmer paper from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and was cut out from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies.
The Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper is exquisite. You get 6 sheets each of Merry Merlot, Copper and Tranquil Tide glimmer paper. The size of the paper is perfect to fit in your big shot, so you can cut out small pieces or any size object from your dies like I did on this card. You can also use it to add a strip of glimmer paper to one side of your card or even as a layer. There’s lots of ways to use glimmer paper. Who doesn’t like some form of glimmer/glitter? I know I do, and I’m sure a lot of you do too!
I wrapped a piece of the beautiful Merry Merlot and Copper 5/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the embossed Merry Merlot layer and tied a simple knot. Like I said, this ribbon is absolutely beautiful. It’s Merry Merlot with a copper sheen one side and a copper with a Merry Merlot sheen on the other side.
The sentiment and the flower swags on the inside of the card were stamped with Merry Merlot Classic Ink. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Baubles Stamp Set.

I’m loving this card and the design on the stamp for the deer and his antlers are absolutely beautiful. I’m also loving these colors. I really didn’t think the Mossy Meadow and the Merry Merlot would work, but I think it works very nicely. Don’t you agree?
