Double Front Dashing Deer

While I've been studiously avoiding a winter theme on purpose for my Christmas cards this year (the festive season falls smack-dab in the hottest months here in Australia), a snowy card was hard to pass up when I saw the inspiration challenge for this week over at Just Add Ink.

So here's what I came up with, a double front style card (design idea gleaned from Lisa Curcio).

Front 1:

Front 2:


Navy and white always look so elegant together, I love them, and here with soft suede they're perfect.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Wonderland, Gorgeous Grunge, Dashing Deer
  • card - night of navy, whisper white, soft suede
  • inks - night of navy, soft suede, Versamark
  • other - Detailed Deer thinlits, Big Shot, white embossing powder, embossing buddy, heat tool, Sahara sand marker, stitched rectangle dies (Poppystamps), stitched hills dies (Poppystamps), Stamparatus

I'm toying with the idea of doing a video on how I made this card, so if that's something you'd like to see please leave a comment to that effect and if there's enough interest I'll do it.

Thanks for stopping by.


Edited to add: Thrilled to have been picked for the challenge! Video made and uploaded at THIS LINK.

Now that is one gorgeous card. All three pages are stunning and I love the design, esp creating the card into a self standing card. Video? You have to ask? Of course please

I agree with Rob, Yes to a video. I love the card and can't wait to see more from you.

This is just stunning Kerry! Fabulous colours, love all the 'pages' to the card and all the 'stitching' really gives that finished off look to the whole card. Just fabulous! Thanks for playing along and supporting us this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo

I'm loving your inside as much as your two front's Kerry! Beautiful scenes on every one and your mix of navy, white and suede is so striking. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

This is another stunner! I really like the soft suede with the navy - what a classy combo. I have never seen a double front card before, so would love to see a video on how to do it. Thanks for sharing.

This is fabulous. Absolutely stunning. I've never seen a card like this and you have set a high standard for those to come. A video would be wonderful. Thank you for sharing with us. Merry Christmas. Carolyn
