Oh deer!

I will admit, I cased a card by Dawn McVey for today's creation. Love her style and use of color! She is one of the first blogs I found when I discovered the blogging world.

What a cute little deer from Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses! I matched him up on some Papertrey Ink card stock cut out & embossed with Labels One nestabilities. I layered some Eskimo Kisses design paper onto New Leaf cardstock. "Noel" is from Dawn's Signature Christmas (finally got it out of it's packaging!) Sparkle added under the sentiment.

While putting this all together, the card base under the deer needed a little something more, and I did lots of playing around to come up with this look. I stamped Versamark ink onto the Impressabilities Snowflake, put that on top of the base and ran it through the cuttlebug. Then, sprinkled with "Bridal" embossing powder. It gives a shimmery, iridescent look to the snowflakes.

Many of the goodies on the card today came in my November guest designer prize package from Kate at i {heart} papers! She has hundreds of items for sale, so be sure to take a look-see!

Happy crafting!
