Oh my deer Christmas is here

Hello, crafty peeps! Happy Saturday – hope you have an awesome weekend planned! Our new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m delighted to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #25 – August Anything Christmas Goes! I created an adorable card featuring a sleeping fawn. OMG, so stinkin’ cute!


I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Fawn stamps and dies which I’ve had in my stash for a number of years, along with a scallop edge punch on the bottom edge of the layer beneath the focal image panel for some interest. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the panel and several snowflakes which I embellished with tiny clear gemstones.


I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of the cardstock used on the front, and stamped the sentiment and a few more snowflakes.


One more look… really loving how this turned out! So simple and so sweet! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
