Deer and Bunny Warm Wishes

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a holiday card!  My plan is to make at least two each month and this is my first for April.  The background behind the die-cuts was a leftover from this card, and the technique was ink smooshing with Distress Oxides.


Die:  Spellbinders Layered Thinking of You Woodlands Scene
Clear stamp: Sentiment (MFT Warm Wishes)
Ink:  Ranger Archival Paradise Teal for sentiment; various Distress Oxides for background
Embossing folder:  Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry
