Christmas Deer Foil Heat Transfer!

Again, I'm posting another foil heat transfer card that I finished after my demonstration tool card class held at Running Scissors in Kent, WA almost two weeks ago.  I really love this heat transfer technique, but there are other ways to achieve almost this very look, which I thought I'd throw out there.  I have a deer-head die, by Savvy dies, almost identical to the deer-head tag that was in our heat transfer pouch of tags that we received at the beginning of the class.  I think that if you die-cut this deer-head die with a gold foil cardstock and adhered it to a piece of white stock and then trimmed the white cardstock to whatever shape you desire, you would end up with almost the exact look!

The deer-head tag on my card was achieved by heat transferring gold transfer foil onto my specially designed tag, which was manufactured to accept foil heat transfers.  I finished my card at home, because I wanted to add several other features that required materials that were not offered in our card kits.  These were:  a red cardbased upon which I layered white glitter cardstock.  I also wanted to back my gold dot vellum with a piece of white cardstock and then frame it with a red foil layer.  I layered my deer tag with red foil cardstock as well, and to the cake sprinkles and gold sequins provided in my kit, I added red sequins to tie all my card colors together with the shaker envelope goodies.  I really love these trendy deers that I see popping up all over Pinterest!  Here is my little deer-head Christmas card for your viewing:
