Begin by folding your card base at 4-1/2″ and burnishing it with a bone folder for a nice, crisp fold.

On Crumb Cake card front, stamp feather stamp randomly to make your background. Some feathers were stamped twice before re-inking.

Now, using the Timeworn Type embossing folder, emboss card front background.

Stamp deer image on white cardstock piece that can fit the second largest die frame. I just used a 1/4 sheet of Cardstock just to make sure, but you can have a piece with the above measurements. I stamped in Soft Suede ink.

I forgot to take a picture before I used a Blending Brush to antique the edges. I antiqued the edges using Crumb Cake.

Cut a 6” length of ribbon and tape to the backside to secure it. Adhere card front to the card base.

Die cut the image mat from the largest scalloped rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set from a piece of Soft Suede Cardstock.

Adhere deer piece to the Soft Suede mat. Next, adhere piece to card base using dimensionals. Make sure it is offset to the left.

Color Baker’s Twine using the Stampin’ Blends marker. Make sure all sides are colored.

Now, tie it to the existing ribbon using a simple knot. Trim to desired length.

Stamp sentiment in Soft Suede. Make sure it is offset to the left.

Cut right edge of sentiment into a banner edge.

Antique edges with a blending brush and Crumb Cake ink.

Adhere sentiment by adding one dimensional next to the banner edge and tape runner adhesive to the left side, since the deer image already has dimensionals you do not want a lopsided sentiment.

Lastly, add 3 dots as accents.
