Now let's talk about the cards I made for the hop, shall we? ^^

If you've been following me for a long time, you already know that I love to stamp and color images to create busy cards. But if you're new here, first of all, welcome to my blog :-) and yes, I'm more of a critter and character kinda girl than die cut pieces.

But I recently started to love making projects featuring die cut elements only, and when I saw the beautiful Folk Art Reindeer die, well, it was love at first sight! And the entire Folk Art collection is absolutely gorgeous, I can't wait to try more of these items!

Both cards were done the same way, here are the different steps:

1) Foil the Folk Art Frame Foil Plate on Strathmore bristol smooth cardstock
2) Line up the Folk Art Frame Stencil on the foiled panel and use distress inks (listed at the end of this blog post) to create beautiful floral clusters, and use the Folk Art Frame matching die to cut the frame
3) Cut a 5,5 x 4,25 inches patterned panel, and stick it to a card base
4) Cut a Fancy Frame, and attach it to the patterned panel using 1mm foam squares
5) Stick the Folk Art Frame pieces on top using 1mm foam squares (2mm foam squares for the oval piece)
6) Cut the Folk Art Reindeer out of two different colored cardstock + mirror cardstock for the antlers, assemble the reindeer, and attach it in the middle of the oval piece using 1mm foam squares
7) Emboss a greeting from Holiday cheer sentiments on whatever cardstock you choose, cut it using the matching die, and stick it under the reindeer
8) Glue a few jems/pearls/sequins around the reindeer, and add a dot of glossy accents on each berry for a last final touch of shine

These cards were so easy and fun to make, I know I already want to make more with different colors. I hope that you like them too, and stay tuned because I will be back very soon with two totally different but yet super cute cards featuring some of the new items from the Waffle Flower September 2023 collection!
