Christmas Deer

Greetings all! Welcome to my post for a few fun challenges:


I started with this darling die set from Sizzix called Christmas Deer (NBUS). It is a 10 piece set designed by Jen Long. I just loved these deer and made 3 sets for fun. This is the image from the package:
The colors for CTD#682 are orange, turquoise, green and kraft. I turned the sketch from FMS#525 sideways and added some gold washi tape on a piece of ink blended stencil background.
Here are all three cards made with the color and sketch in mind. I broke out my washi tape and used it on all 3 cards.
This one has a stamped background from my stash and washi tape from Wendy Vecchi Washi Tape Assortment #1:
This one has a mixed media background with embossing paste through a stencil:
I used the grey star washi tape on this card from the Sizzix Making Essential Assortment which as of this port is on sale for $2.00! I love these colors and plan to use the pink for some Easter Bunny Die Cuts. Just lay lines of the washi tape across a piece of cardstock and die cut. Works perfectly!
The sentiments come from 2 sets in my stash: Avery Elle Alpine Christmas and Memory Box Loving Deer. I recently sorted by stamps and dies by holiday/theme. It really is helping in creating cards.
Thank you for joining me today and thanks to the challenges for the inspiration!
