Christmas Kickstart Challenge #21 - Woodland Creatures

Hello friends.  The current Christmas Kickstart Challenge is looking for WOODLAND CREATURES on our Christmas cards.

I have a sweet little set from Catherine Pooler called Winter Woodland that I thought was perfect for this challenge and came up with this card:

I started by embossing the 3 trees in clear embossing powder, and then blended my background over them using a few different shades of blue inks from Gina K.  Next I cut out my snowbank that I used a new die on from The Greetery called Drifting Die...just love all those dotted swirls of snow!!  Next I stamped the deer, bunny, and Cardinal and fussy cut them out and then added them to my little woodland scene.

The sentiment also comes from the Winter Woodland set, and I finished the card by mounting to a Real Red panel and a white card base, and also adding a few star gems to the background.

There are still a few days left to play in this challenge, so check out the inspiration and then play along right HERE.  Christmas is ONLY 10 weeks away friends, so time to get those cards started!!  :0)
