Little Deer ~ MFT Camp Create day 1 ~ 3 Amigos Blog Hop Challenge

Good Morning Dreamers,

This Morning I want to share with you a cute card I created using paper from Close To My Heart.  
The Challenge is using all Close To My Heart papers of a certain theme. This month it is using papers and elements from the "Jack" campaign. 
I also decided to double up this cute card for My Favorite Things Camp Create using the Inlay Technique

Card Recipe
All paper is Close To My Heart with the exception of the card base which is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb
This card started off way different than how it is in the finished project. At first I was just going to create the white die cut deer and apply it with some to the top layer.  But then I thought that looked bland, so I die cut the deer a total of 4 times using Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb and glued them all together using a very strong adhesive.  Once it was dry I still felt it was lacking something, so I stamped the layered die cut with versamark and used WOW clear embossing powder and heat set it. YEP! Now I was happy with the way the deer looked as the embossing powder really makes the stitched edge of the deer stand out. I then used the deer die and cut out the black patterned paper layer because it would give the added stitching on which to put the white deer as an inlay. The word Little is from the same CTMH paper kit that I die cut using a fishtail banner flag and then attached to a larger fishtail banner flag to make the sentiment stand out.  Lastly silver enamel dots were added to the corners for interest.
Paper is CTMH "JACK" Campaign and you can grab it right here: Jack Paper Pack
Silhouette Deer is from Jaded Blossom Stamps "Christmas Die Set" 
Stitched Rectangle dies are from Kat Scrappiness  
I do hope you will pop on over to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenges and peek at all the lovely projects they have created using this paper. 
While using CTMH paper is encouraged the challenge is open to anyone to enter if you follow the theme/colors/inspiration
I wish to thank all the lovely designers over at Three Amigos for letting me join them this month
