SO Deer Card - Pattern Paper Basics

Hi everyone! Welcome back to Scrappin on Sunday! I wanted to do a little card with my new cricut machine and how to pick out pattern paper and my current pattern paper obsession at the moment. : ) So keep reading! : )

Here's the card for today! Its super cute! : ) I love the dear : )

For the supplies:
 Here is my favorite pattern paper pads. I bought these from Michaels Craft store for half off. They are awesome! : ) 240 in each pad! Love it great buy!

Here in the basket, I used my Cricut 2, Create a Critter, Stamp n Bond, Martha Stewart Glitter, Light brown organza ribbon, Versa Mark ink, Light brown cardstock, white cardstock, creme cardstock.

Here I used my two pattern paper from the floral paper pad. They go together as a aset with color matching. So I decided to use the stripes with a little floral patern. A large pattern like the stripes pair up nice with the small floral pattern. In pattern paper its always good to pick out one sheet with lots of colors and to match one laid back color from the set. Then I found some light brown and white cardstock as well and paired it nicely.

Here as you can see I used the light brown cardstock as the base and its at the standard card size 5-1/2x4-1/4. And I trimmed the floral sheet to 4-1/4x2-1/2. Then I trimmed the vertical stripes 4-1/4x3-1/2. These do overlap.

So you will have some over lap in the paper but that's alright the next step will show you why : )

 I love this look with organza ribbon. I just layered it over the floral so it balanced out the card layout.

Here is what is on my cricut screen! And how I spaced everything out. I used the deer and the little caption and goes with it.

Here is my spacing for the deer : )

Here is my final product. I put glitter on the third layer of the dear and glitter on the first layer of the saying. To learn how I did the glitter check out my tutorial up top : ) I hope you enjoyed this card tutorial and I'll see you again next week! : )
