In the Shadows

Good Morning
I wanted to challenge myself to create a very non-traditional card and this is what I came up with.
Also the challenge this morning over at Splitcoast Stampers was called 'In the Shadows' so I gave it a go.

I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock, placed it into my Misti and stamped the Script bkg.  
I just love the look of the mixed fonts and scripts.
Next, I placed the piece into my Cuttlebug and die-cut the deer.  I cut it again 3 more time with some extra white cardstock and stacked and glued them all together.  Before I placed the deer back into my card front, I rubbed some black along the edges to help define the image.  I stamped the sentiment from PB at the bottom in red then glued the card front onto a piece of red cardstock then glued the dear head back into place.  
I added it onto a heavy white card base then added a drop of red Nuvo to his nose like Rudolph would have lol.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Stamps- Script (Prima); Christmas Sentiments (PB)
Inks- Versafine Clair Noir; Lawn Fawn red
Paper- heavy white (Scribes Nook); red cs (Michaels)
Accessories and Tools- Deer die (STAMPlorations); Cuttlebug; Red Nuvo; inking tool

This looks great Karen and I the red nose, and the shadow look with the edge of the die emphasised works for the theme perfectly, and love the background too. x

Cool design and I love that you made it a Rudolph too. That pop of red looks awesome against that background.
