Oh Deer!

Well, I am not really happy with this card, but gonna post it anyways! I used Asela's new set from Gina K Designs and I was trying to make the deer look like logs, I actually used to have one of these deers made out of logs like this, till something chewed on one of it's legs after we put it outside. We lived close to a creek and DH says it was probably a beaver. Well, we cut the legs off to match, it had chewed on one of them...then it chewed on it again and it just looked too funny with really short legs after us trying to fix it again, rofl. So we trashed the thing. Anyways, here's my card:



I wanted them to look like they were meeting under the trees so used the little sprig stamp that comes in the set to do that, some are heat embossed. I made the little 'poinsettia' flowers (SUPPOSE to look like them, lol) by using the silkeen flowers from Gina K also, love that you can color on those! I layered them 3 times and stuck a brad in the middle after coloring them is all. I like how they turned out and that is what made me post the card! LOL!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Thanks for stopping by!

Hey, I like the card. When our grandkids were young we had a white deer (made from birch).

I am so glad I 'follow' you or I might have missed this. These dear deer are too cute for words and I love what you did with the decorative poinsettias too!
