Deer Duo

This is my post at the
Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today.

Hi, Diane with you today with an easy to do
gatefold card.
Deer Duo
I started first by printing then coloring in the 
Once that was done I used a Memory Box Square Stitched die cut
Deer Duo
I added glue from a Quickie Glue pen to the antlers.

Then quickly added Sparkle N Soft Sparkling Sands flocking
to give the antlers a bit of a 'velvet' look.
the deer noses.

I set them aside to dry (overnight) and started working on the gatefold card.
The red card stock was cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, then scored at
2 1/8" from either side.
The 2 white panels were cut 5 1/4 x 1 7/8.
I used a bone folder to get good creases in the base of the card.

A Memory Box snowflake stencil was used
Sparkling Snow glitter was them sprinkled on.
These were also set aside to dry (overnight)
then I used the Glitter Brush to brush off all excess glitter
Deer Duo
Once dry each panel was adhered to the front of the
gatefold card.

The sentiment was printed and adhered inside of the card.

I added a tiny velcro dot to the left side of the image to hold the card flat for mailing.

This card was very easy to make and also an easy mailer!
