Deer Ornament/Tag

Created this Deer Ornament that can also be used as a Tag.

Used Cricut Winter Frolic for base. Cut 2 pieces one of plain white cardstock & one of white glitter cardstock. Attached the white glitter cardstock to plain white cardstock for more sturdiness. White glitter cardstock used for snow look.
Cut the Deer from new die I found at Michaels clearanced priced $2 ( Yeah!) Basic Grey/Sizzix Deer die. Did not know that Basic Grey (BG) collaborated with Sizzix before. All BG I ever had was BG stamps that I got several of online.  

Wonderful thing about the Tim Holtz Vagabond is that I can cut pieces such as paper, felt, foam stacked on top of one another with die face up. Inside of ear & spots are pink foam from my Valentine foam stash that has adhesive on the back of it so I put the foam on top of the brown cardstock when cutting. The nose is red felt so I stacked a scrap of red felt on top of the brown cardstock. The die has the eye off to the side on the die. I stacked brown felt for eye brows, white felt for next layer of eye & black felt for eyeball. The antler is brown felt which is off to the side on the die. 

Taped some scrap pieces of the cardstock behind the ear area & spots area. Peeled the adhesive off the back of the pink foam and put in place. Added a scrap piece of red ribbon. 

Found a mini gold jingle bell that had broken off an ornament so I recycled it on the deer attaching it with a glue dot.

Stamped sentiment and cut sentiment tag with a Spellbinder. 

Used Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to attach sentiment tag & Deer to the white glitter cardstock. 

Added some gold ribbon to hang the ornament from the tree with and gold ribbon bow.
