A deer in the woods

The AAA Challenge is : Christmas.

I used the Memory Box tree branch circle die to diecut the window from 140lbs cardstock.
I then chose a piece of patterned paper from a 12x12"block I have and cut out the bit I wanted.

Previously I used a deer diecut and inkblended backgrounds, but  I wanted to change this up, This version would also be much easier to mass produce if you have enough patterned paper.

I stamped the sentiment from Hero arts (classic Christmas borders) with Memento toffee crunch and the MISTI, good thing too as I need to stamp it a couple of times, the magnets are good to keep your paper in place but they also interfere with the "bendability"of the acryllic sheet.

I mounted the panel with foamtape, adhered the deer paper and then applied taperunner to the back so I could attach it to a cardbase.

I almost went for my circle and diecut cards, but as one od the DT members (Coralynn) had the same idea, i'll just show you some of mine


  1. This design works so perfectly Maaike and great for CAS cards. Love your intricate die of the woodland scene in your card but I have to say those blue ones really do make me swoon. Great work and thanks for playing along at AAA Cards this week. Sarah

  2. Gorgeous cards! Love the blue ones especially, but they're all fabulous.

  3. Amazing! All of your cards are stunning. I love the collection of Christmas cards all in blue. But your main card is just as stunning. I love the kraft with the white and it has a great CAS feel. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!

  4. All pretty, but I really like the unexpected neutral card.

  5. Wow wow wow all of these cards are gorgeous. Such a simple concept with so may possibilities.i love the blue backgrounds. Thanks for sharing at AAA Cards. Jenny x
