For One Night Only

     A rather simple card made with one of last years Woodware stamps and a die cut. Keeping the colour palette to black, white and a splash of red makes it a bold card, suitable for any age or gender.
     Using Versamark I stamped on to black card and then embossed with white powder, I also ran a white ink across the card to look like a slightly dirty blackboard. I left a wide border around the stamp to make it stand out and matted it on red for a hit of colour.
     The card blank was run through a snowfall embossing folder before the image panel was stuck on to it.
     The deer was die cut in both white card and black, I stuck the black over the white but slightly out of line to give a reverse shadow effect, it makes him stand out a little better against the black background.
     All that remained was to give him, or her, a tiny red gem for a nose. The deer is mounted on foam pads so that it stands out a little form the card, but will still fit in a standard postage envelope.
     This month's optional theme at Christmas At Sweet Stampin' is Critters, so if you have any animals on your cards then please come over and join in the December fun.
