When I found out that the Dashing Deer stamp set was going to carry over to our new Annual Catalog, I think I squealed! I love not only the stamp set, but the dies are the bomb. I thought it was time for a fun fold. This time a little twist on the traditional Z-fold.

Dashing Deer Z-Fold

Sometimes people are intimated with a fancy fold. I promise this one is easy. When you order your Dashing Deer stamp set, be sure to add the Detailed Deer dies. You’ll want those to die cut that gorgeous copper foil deer.

I didn’t have any Christmas DSP. But, no worries, Perennial Essence DSP to the rescue. One of the sheets has a fabulous green foilage image. That design is the perfect backdrop for my Dashing Deer.

The z-fold is perfect for display. With just a few score lines and a couple of pieces of cardstock, you’re on your way.

Because I embosssed everything in Copper, the card really says Christmas to me. And that Woodland Embossing Folder helped to make my Dashing Deer look right at home.
