Getting A Head For Christmas


     This little deer is made using a Sizzix die and some gorgeous pearlescent card from Stix2, he will fit in a standard C6 envelope.
     One head was cut from Bronze card and the other from Tinted Cream, the cream one allows you to write your message inside with a standard pen.
     The antlers were cut in Copper and stuck onto the back of the Bronze head, while the muzzle, eyes and ears were cut from Oyster, eyeballs from Bronze and the nose from Red Fever and stuck on the front.
     The cream head was stuck at the top only to form the tent opening, I found just below the ears looked about right. To make it stand up I cut the bottom straight across with a sharp knife, going through both layers so it was even front and back.
     His nose has a shiny red foil dot made using a 2in1 glue pen and transfer foil, a small white pen dot on each eyeball makes them look shiny too.
    Made as a card or as a special gift tag I think this little chap is going to be a real winner this Christmas.
