I made this card as a submission for Simon Says Stamp's 'Wrap It Up' Challenge. I patterned it off of this card I found by Donna M on Splitcoast Gallery.
I started out by die cutting and embossing the buck from the Sue Wilson Deer Family die out of a glossy white cardstock. I die cut a piece of black cardstock to frame it. Despite the shading in the picture, the card base is white. I took a piece of Donna K patterned paper for the center panel. I didn't have any blue paper in the shade I wanted for the borders on the panel, so I coloured some white cardstock with a blue marker. I glued the two strips on and made indents in the paper where the white thread would go (if I had silver thread I'd have used that instead for this). I threaded the paper and taped it in place on the back before gluing the panel down. I used pop dots to attach the deer frame to the card.
