Seasons Greetings...

Hey there!

I hope everyone is enjoying this long weekend and taking advantage of all the great sales happening everywhere you look. My card today has a whole lot of Hello Bluebird goodness going on and they just so happen to be having a 20% OFF Black Friday sale going on now through the 30th, all you gotta do is use the code THANKFUL21 at check out. Getting back to my card, I've really been wanting to create a winter scene for this sweet, vintage looking deer that is part of the Merry Little Christmas set. Because she is part of a mostly sentiment set, I borrowed images from a few different sets to help tell the story. First I grabbed the tree stump from the Coffee Friends set, then one of the birds from the Feed the Birds set and masked them together. In the background I stamped my favorite stand of birch trees from the Picked For You set a few different times so they extended across the entire half circle. Once my scene was all colored and ready to mount on my card base I decided to add a little extra interest using the Cozy Plaid background stamp to add a white pattern on the kraft card base. The berries are from the Holly and Pine die set and after coloring them and gluing them on the card I added some Ranger glossy accents to make them nice and shiny. The sentiment is from the Big Christmas Greetings set, which I heat embossed using gold powder and used the coordinating die to cut out. I told you a whole lotta Hello Bluebird ended up on this sweet, simple Christmas card... LOL!  ;) 

Stay crafty my friends!

I really love this card. Thank you for including all the colors that you used. That is my hardest part. I have some of these stamps used, perhaps I can copy :)
