I have to admit that i have fallen head over heels with the deer and the squirrls from the Greeting Farm’s Forest friends. I did stamp up some during the scrapgathering but im starting to run low on them,so i just HAD to order the set for myself – a good use for the money i got from my grandma in cristmas gift. Some other (lots…) find it’s way into my ordering-baskets so I can’t wait for my mailbox to be full of goodies, but it will probobly be for after the 7th when i get home again from the baptism of my godson (that’s the card that is comming up).
I have been thinking a lot about this card, especially the papers and I have been wondering what would be suitable as a focal to them, so after some thinking i decided that the Deer would be good- as a raindeer-feel. So i colored the Deer with Copics, and got happy with it and then started to pull a couple of papers from the Holly Jolly Christmas-collection from Echo Park, then i got some cardstock to match and put it all in front of me. And then i spilled the biggest glass of milk over it all! Let’s just say that it was annoying and that i dried all the papers with my embossing-gun. All paper was ok, a bit wobbly but ok, except for the deer so i had to redo him, i have to say that the second one got a bit better- but still….
I used a Cute Card Thursday’s Sketch for the layout, just changing a bit. I also followed the colors of this weeks Shabby Tea Room.
The decorations on this card is mostly the rhinestones and the ribbon but i also put a hint of diamond stickles on some of the christmaslight-paper. The background of the Deer is made with some nestabilities (scalloped and normal oval) and the white paper is embossed with Provocraft’s embossingfolder Snowflakes. The greeting is stamped with the distress Ink Gathered Twigs.
