Deer Behind Vellum

Hello All,

For today I am playing along with The Male Room. This card turned out just right for this challenge. Here is my card for tonight. Enjoy!

I stamped the reindeer on the back of the vellum then sponged
a white piece of CS and attached it all with the gold brads.
Leaving the center of the CS white it gives
the illusion that it is glowing. The vellum also diffuses the color nicely.
The sentiment is was done using gold foil.
After a bit of practice I finally got it..
Close up of the center panel.
This card does have a masculine feel due to the wood backdrop. I had this remnant on my table for ages then finally got a chance to use it.. My experience with the foil is mixed. When it is done right, WOW it looks great but it takes a lot of trail and error to get there. I don't think I will use it again due to the time it took to apply it correctly. I will be interested in what you have to say about foil.. Any tips and tricks I should know about if I do attempt it again?

Challenge Entered:

That should do it for me.. Again, any tips and tricks would be appreciated along with any comments you may have.. Thank you for taking the time to spend with me tonight.. Take care and we will see you soon!

All the Best,

PS. My kids just read the title and they asked 'Why did you do a card about a deer's behind...' I told them to read it more carefully while I had to walk away and laugh..

I think your take on the challenge is super. I like the way you've used the brads to attach the vellum. Love the reindeer behind the vellum and that gold is gorgeous. Super card. Thanks so much for playing along with our Hardware challenge at The Male Room this week!
