Warm Wishes Deer

Hi, everyone!  I know it's spring, but I like to make at least two winter holiday cards each month.  This is my first for April, and I went with a CAS card. 

Dies:  Glitz Dies Winter Deer Circle, Nellie's Multiframe Circles
Clear stamp:  Pink and Main Oh Deer (sentiment)
Ink:  Memento Nautical Blue
Embossing folder:  Taylored Expressions Snowfall
Patterned paper:  Echo Park I Love Winter 6x6
Punch:  Recollections Small Snowflake
Other:  Clear sequins

My card design was inspired by Crafting Vicky Sketch 4:

I also finished the inside of my card:

Dies:  Glitz Dies Winter Deer Circle (trimmed out the deer - this die does not cut well and I didn't want to waste my first attempt.  I used a shim the second time, which appears on the front of my card)
Clear stamp:  STAMPlorations Joys of the Season - Typografia Christmas
Ink:  Memento Nautical Blue
Patterned paper:  Echo Park I Love Winter 6x6

I would like to support the following 10 challenges:
  1. ABC Christmas I for Inside UE
  2. Crafting Vicky Sketch 4
  3. Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 487 AG Optional For a Child UE
  4. Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper April UE
  5. Crimbo Crackers 209 Use Your Old Stash (Nellie's Multiframe Circles was the first die set I purchased, so it is well over 10 years old)
  6. Cute Card Thursday Dotty UE
  7. Rudolph Day April 1E C10
  8. STAMPlorations April CAS AG CAS Optional Colour Twist Lemon Yellow 2/3
  9. STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes AG UE
  10. Word Art Wednesday 436-437 AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5 wk2

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Wow! This is awesome inside and out. I love the deer silhouette in white. I always think of black but the white really works well with the blue. Gorgeous card. Would love for you to share it over at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up. Big hugs, virtually of course!

Donna Ellis said...

Kitty, what fabulous cards! I especially am in love with your first creation because it seems so extra pretty! Like you, I promised myself 4 Christmas cards per month, and because I'm so slow this month with my fumble fingers, I have not completed them, but all the pieces have been die cut! Your creations are so sweet with the dotted paper! hugs, de

Such an elegant card and I love the inside ... I never get round to doing the insides of cards or envelopes... something I need to work harder on remembering.
