Rip a hill in a Post It Note and use it as a mask for the snow. Stick it to a 4″ x 4.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
Punch a 1 3/4″ circle from the sticky part of a Post it note to mask the Moon.
Brayer Going Gray ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayer Taken with Teal at the top of the card stock, not covering all of the Going Gray ink.
Brayer Night of Navy at the top of the card stock, not covering the Taken with Teal entirely.
Remove the masks and stamp the Deer from the Stampin’ Up set Nature Silhouettes with Basic Black ink.
Loaded the tree stamp from the Stampin’ Up Set Branch Out with Basic Black ink omitting the grassy part of the stamp.
Stamped it to the right of the deer.
Stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ UP set Branch Out with White Craft ink.
Sponged a bit of Going Gray under the deer to create a shadow in the snow.
Cut a 4 7/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Night of Navy for a background panel. Stamped the large snowflake from the Stampin’ Up Set Serene Snowflakes with Basic Black ink all over the card stock.
Added a few small snowflakes from the same stamp set with White craft ink.
Assembled my layers and added white ribbon and silver brads to the bottom of the card.
Decided to add the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up set A Cardinal Christmas using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Going Gray ink.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
I just returned from teaching some fabulous stampers in Maine yesterday so I thought I would share just a few of the pictures I took at the shore. 🙂 It was pretty wet and cloudy my entire visit, but Maine is a site to see if you ever get a chance.
May your day be dry and toasty warm!
