Cozy Christmas Deer

Happy Saturday! I made this card using Asela's deer from Christmas Blessings. I stamped the deer first, then colored them with Koh-i-noor pencils, blending the colors with odorless mineral spirits.

Then I went over the images with a Versa Mark pen and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

To create the background I sponged over the whole area with So Saffron, followed by Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip. Then I stamped around the edges with the evergreen branch using Chocolate Chip ink.

To create the sentiment strip, I stamped the sentiment, then cut it into a 1/2 strip. Then I fed the ends, one at a time, into a 1/2 inch circle punch to round the ends.

Have a great weekend!!!
