Oh Deer! ~~ Wild Whisper Blog Hop

It's an exciting day! Today I am participating in a blog hop featuring a paper line from a brand new Canadian design company, Wild Whisper.

Wild Whisper launched on November 1 with an fabulous line-up of boutique products that includes papercorkchipboard & wood veneerembossing powders & sequins

If you are following the blog hop you may have come here from Kim Evans blog post - Adventure Awaits! There are plenty more fun, inspirational & creative ideas ahead. So get comfy and be inspired!


I absolutely love the rustic designs paired with the muted colours.

Gorgeous, right?  I had a hard time choosing which paper to use because it was all so pretty!
In the end I ended up not using using any paper - my tag used 2 cards from the Holiday Style card pack. 

I started with a sheet of kraft cardstock that I trimmed to 7.5" x 3.5". I cut a 2" circle at one end and scored it at 2.5" from the end with the circle.
I took the 3"x 4" Oh Deer card & rounded the bottom corners. I also used the 4"x 6" green Antler card and trimmed it down to fit the base of the tag & again rounded the bottom corners. 
I then inked both cards and the kraft base first with Walnut Stain Distress Ink then Ground Espresso Ink with my round ink blending tool.
I spritzed the Oh Deer card and the kraft cardstock with some water for the droplet effect.

For the deer head - I first applied the green deco sheet from the Tim Holtz Holiday pack to some heavy card and die cut it out using the Dashing Deer die from Sizzix. I then inked the edges of the die cut the same way I did the cards.

To assemble my tag I used some score tape to adhere the Dashing Deer to the kraft cardstock at the score line. Next I stuck down the green Antler card and finally using some dimensional foam I stuck down the Oh Deer card. I added a bit of paper string and some brown sequins to the Oh Deer before I stuck it down.

My Dashing Deer was looking a bit 'naked' so I inked up some crinkle ribbon and tied it around his neck and added a Candy Cane charm from Emerald Creek

I covered the charm with Candied Apple Distress Paint and roughly wiped some off once it had almost dried.

My finished tag is now done and ready to pop on to a wine bottle - perfect for a hostess gift!
