Silent Night Gift Tag - Version 2

Hand Painted Deer



At first glance you might think this tag is exactly like the first one. Here's a link to that posting, in case you missed it. Silent Night Gift Tag #4

The overall design is similar but the ribbon, star and deer are different. To me, this little guy looks like a young buck because of the size of his antlers.








Deer


Sometimes cardstock does not always do well when cutting fine details with the Cricut.

After trying several different cardstock types, I usually end up cutting the shapes out of plain white CS that has a smooth texture and cuts crisply. 

For this tag, the deer and trees were made this way. I am not exactly an artist so I have to rely on my imagination in deciding on the most realistic colours to paint them. As always, I use my ProMarkers for this job.

The deer is from Winter Wonderland cartridge.


Layers

Lots of layers do the trick in giving these tags dimension and life. From front to back there are 7 layers. I wish the camera would capture the sparkle of the snow better.  The following pic illustrates the layers.


Cartridges Used

Library Fonts - 'Silent Night' phrase
Winter Frolic - tag shape
Winter Woodland - trees
Winter Wonderland - deer

Okay, that's it for the Silent Night tags. I'd better get busy making the next ones I have in mind. SO many choices... so little time!
