House of Cards Blog Hop


Deedee's Digis is sponsoring the House of Cards Blog Hop this week, and this is the inspiration photo we're basing our cards on.


I used the pre-colored image and sentiment from Deedee's Winter Woods digi set for my card. I printed the deer and fussy cut it, popping it up on foam tape on a piece of cool caribbean card stock. I stamped a tree image from Flourishes, embossing it with winter wonderland ep for some sparkle, then added 2 different colors of stickles to the ground for snow. I die cut 2 Memory box deer and added some white sharpie accents to the fawn. Lastly, I added some star sequins to the sky along with a die cut of a MB Star of Wonder done in silver-embossed cardstock.

Be sure to hop along with the House of Cards Blog Hop to win some great prizes!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Beautiful card Carol! Love the MB deer as extras to this gorgeous one from Deedee's! The little star sequins just top it all off perfectly.

Great card and a lovely deer image. So many have ridiculous amounts of antlers, but this one is reasonable.
