Another Angle

This card started out as a CAS angled card but...


...I couldn't stop adding things. 

I started out with the piece of dsp on an angle and then stamped Dasher 
and thought to myself it needs more. I then added the strip of dsp down 
the side and the button with the toile (no pin or tag). Well, I couldn't stop 
there so I added the ribbon and the scalloped piece to the bottom and then 
thought, why not add it to the side too? So I did. I didn't like how the 
corners met so I added the pin and the tag. Well, now Dasher looked 
pretty boring as I had only stamped him in baked brown sugar so I 
thought I would emboss him. I used the versamark pen and ran it over
the deer and then embossed with early espresso.
Mental note - don't do that again. The edges aren't as crisp as they
would have been if I embossed in the first place.
I used the early espresso marker to make the antlers stand out a bit more. 
I then added the greeting which I embossed the proper way (lol).
All in all, I'm happy with how it turned out considring that at one point 
I thought it was going to end up in the trash.
