I made a background panel using Distress and Hero Arts Shadow Inks and then stamped some trees and foliage to go behind the birch tree oval that I cut using my Cameo and then I cut and inked the edges of the deer to go in front of the birch trees. I also put some little spots on the fawn using my white Signo pen. I cut two ovals...on the bottom one I used some microfine glitter and I cut the top one using some silver glitter paper, glued them together and popped them up with an oval die cut piece of fun foam. I designed the sentiment and the mat layer below it...I cut the "Merry Christmas" using some more of the silver glitter paper and then cut a couple of layers of the mat to pop it up. I kept this pretty simple and uncluttered as I wanted the "deer scene" to be the focal point. Here is a close-up.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope y'all liked this one!!!
