Flourished Deer Puttin' On the Glitz! Ornament



Today is Group Post time over at Elizabeth Craft Designs and the theme is.... tada!.... Christmas!  The Quietfire Team is definitely going with home decor!

It's Suzanne here today and this is my project!  It was time to turn the Flourished Deer into a hanging 2-sided decoration.  Here is how I did it - and you can do it, too!  Ladies and Gentlemen, get out your glitter!


Supplies:
A Way With Words Flourished Deer  QFD | ECD
Silk Microfine Glitter
  • Cool Diamond  ECD
  • Teal Blue  ECD
  • Bright Cranberry  ECD
Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets  ECD
Tombow Mono Multi Glue
Gold cardstock

Instructions:

Cut two pieces of cardstock large enough for the Flourished Deer die.  Apply Double Sided Adhesive to each piece.


Die cut the one deer with the adhesive on the front and one with the adhesive on the back. 

Apply two different colours of Silk Microfine Glitter to each one.  I used Cool Diamond for one side and Teal Blue for the other.



Use your finger to firmly (but carefully!) polish the glitter to bring out the shine! It makes a huge difference, so don't miss out on this step!!



Use glue on the back of one deer in quite a few places then put the deer back to back, making sure everything aligns.  Allow the glue to set.

Glitter the deers' collars with Bright Cranberry and die cut the bells from gold cardstock.  Attach with glue to each side of the deer.




Then simply add a string or ribbon through the flourished antlers as shown.


Just hang one deer or a whole herd!  Since they're double-sided, they look great from all angles!



Just ask if you have any questions. Thanks for having a look!
Suzanne
