Dashing Deer Card

Hey everyone, I am finally back on my blog today and I am sharing a project I created for a Christmas card series over on my YouTube channel.  Today is project #9 and I created this project using the Dashing Deer stamp and die set from My Favorite Things (one of my favorite companies).  I love the images in this little set so much!  This was purchased from Scrapbook Nerd online store.

To create this card, I added some Distress Oxide ink in Antique Linen to the A2 card base which is Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I love this paper so much and the ink just blends so nicely.  I stamped out my images using my Misti tool and some Versafine ink in Onyx Black onto some Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.  Then I colored my images using some Faber Castell Polychromos.  I chose these colored pencils because I just recently purchased them and was really excited to take them for a spin.  Prismacolors would work just fine as well.

Once I finished the coloring, I die cut my little critters and added them to my card base, which I had previously embellished with a snow drift, some birch trees and a silver glittery frame.  Then I just added some details with Wink of Stella, Nuvo drops and a sentiment.  I have inlcuded a link to the process video and a list of supplies.
