Deer Christmas Card

Today I'm posting for the Card A Day Blog with the theme of Christmas Animals. I'm using a stamp and die set for my card.

I started by stamping the trees twice onto a light green pattern paper then die cutting them.  I used my heat gun to dry the ink as the paper is a little slick.  I stamped the deer onto tan cardstock and die cut him and an extra out of brown cardstock. 

I cut off one set of the tree trunks and used pop up dots between the layers (you can see just a hint of the pop up dots between the layers).  I layered everything onto the red ribbon and the tan cardstock.  I off set the stamped deer with the dark brown cardstock for a bit of a shadow.

Thanks for stopping by.
