Deer Family Christmas Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. The days just seem to be rushing by not too long and it will be half term for me.

Today I am sharing another Christmas card with you I made  using the Deer Family die set by Sue Wilson. I just love this die set and I love using it.

As you might be aware I have made a version of this card before. This time I tweaked the design a little,  I do like to try out other ideas. 

I have been making cards with a starry sky in them and a moon. I was in the Supermarket looking at the Craft magazines when the stamp set and embossing folder on Simply Cards and Papercraft issue 142 caught my eye. What I spotted was this tiny Santa and his sleigh  stamp that I thought would look great flying across one of the moons I have been creating. 

This time I cut the Stag in brown card and I added gold card behind to show off the filigree detail. 

I did the same with the mum and baby. The trees in the background were cut with a Tattered Lace die. 

I was pleased with how this card turned out. I have some other ideas for this die set so you will probably be seeing them again. 

I haven't entered any challenges for a while so I thought it was about time. I would like to enter the following challenges:

I hope that the rest of the week is kind to you. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
