We Create Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome! Can you believe it's already December?! This year has really gone by fast. I think it is because I'm older and busier. Yeah, that's it.  I'm feeling a bit festive this year so the decorations are out and 1/2 way up. I will most likely be finishing that up quick as it has just started to snow.

My card came together quick! There are a few things going on here that I really like. First, I wanted the softly falling background but it was just too simple with the dear right on it. Still a nice card but not what I was after. Then the deer on the Crumb Cake by itself was too plain so I added the DSP... and then the twine and ... perfection!  You also might see that I used the DSP on the envelope flap. Something I think I will start doing.

I tried the floral line above and below the phrase but that was too much. The deer you see is on the outside front lower left of the envelope.

  1. Those stamps lend themselves to such great looking cards. You did a great job with it. Beautiful card.

  2. I agree- the embossing, the DP and the twine make the card complete and beautiful! :)

  3. I love the little strip of DSP and the coordinating envelope. The softly falling is a beautiful background as well. The inside is beautiful and the little floral line below the sentiment is a nice balance. Very festive!

  4. Great card design. Love these colors together and the designer series paper adds the perfect touch. :)
