Grassy Grove, Framed & Festive, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

When I saw this card on Pinterest I knew I just had to make it. And I knew I had most of the items to make this card so here it is. You can see the original card here. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top. 

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of gold foil card stock. I die cut the two deers from the center of the gold foiled piece. Then I glued the gold foiled piece to the front of the card.

A 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Designer Series Paper (DPS) from the "Lights Aglow" 6" x 6" stack was cut and glued on top of the gold foil piece. I used glue because I've had issues with the tape not sticking so well to the gold foil. I suppose if I ruffed up the gold foil a bit the tape would adhere better but I don't like to do that because I sometimes would ruff up areas that showed. So glue works best for me.

Then I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic Black card stock and I die cut the forest image using the die from the "Grassy Grove" bundle.  I glued that in place just a round the border and a few dots in some of the larger areas in the trees.

The deers were glued in place in the center of the card.

I die cut a stitched rectangle from the "Rectangle Stitched" Framelits die set. I had used the second smallest on the smaller grouping of four dies. And I used the smallest one in that grouping for the words.

The words are from the "Framed & Festive" set and were stamped using Versa Mark on a scrap piece of Basic Black card stock. Then gold embossing powder was sprinkled over it and it was heat set. Then it was glued to the gold foiled rectangle. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the upper part of the card. I centered it by eyeing it. I didn't measure.

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White to the inside and the card was done.

I REALLY like the looks of this card and if I had a lot of gold foil card stock, I think I would be making these for our yearly Christmas card. But there's not enough of the DSP in that stack. UGH!!  There goes that idea! Oh well.  LOL

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas card,
