Love a Good Gingham

 My Peaceful Gingham Deer

What do you think?  Isn't he handsome?  This little gingham deer was made by punching him from one of the patterns in the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper.  It a FREE Sale-A-Bration choice with a qualifying order.  

I don't know about you, but I have always loved a good gingham designer paper pattern -- in any color. There is something about gingham that exudes a nostalgic and cozy feeling while looking crisp and fresh at the same time. 

On the opposite side of the paper with the "punchable" gingham deer is the awesome black and red gingham check that I used on the lower panel of this card.  I love how Stampin' Up! provides so many products that coordinate.  It makes the creative process a little easier.  

The beautiful Red foil is available in the new Fall Mini Catalog and the pack includes both Red and Green foil--perfect for Christmas Cards.  I embossed the foil with the snowflake pattern- which is one of two patterns in the Wintery 3D Embossing Folders pack.

The gingham deer was layered on one of two circles created with the Layering Circles dies.  To finish the card front I added the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the Peaceful Place Suite in the Mini and then sprinkled a few Red Rhinestones on the card.  If you have missed this ribbon, you should go check it out.  It is beautiful and sparkly, but because of the organdy material it remains transparent so it takes nothing away from what is behind it!

Sticking with my mantra "no naked card insides" I trimmed the inside with black and red layered mats and a narrow strip of the gingham ribbon.

I hope you like today's card and I'd love to hear your comments.  If you have questions about how to recreate this card, there is a free tutorial available which provides step by step instructions and all the cutting dimensions.
