The Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper is so pretty with its copper accents. This deer print is one of my favorites. I bordered it with Copper Foil, and placed it on a Gray Granite card base.

Joyous Noel Deer


It was fun discovering that a deer from the Dashing Deer bundle matches the deer on the DSP.  Since the deer wanted to be camouflaged, I stamped him in Gray Granite ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. There’s a die in the Detailed Deer set that made for easy cutting.

The deer is standing on a sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All stamp set, which was cut with a Merry Christmas label die.


The Gray Granite circle behind the deer was made with a Layering Circles die, and plays an important role in the layout. My inspiration for today’s project is from the challenge at CAS(E) this sketch.


For the horizontal strip, I used Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, and couldn’t resist adding a bow.


I hope you were inspired by seeing today’s Joyous Noel DSP. It’s definitely a “Specialty” paper! You can take a closer look at all of the patterns by clicking on the picture in my Product List below.
