Merry Christmas Deer ~ DD78 & FM135

Oh, how I LOVE this card!!!!  I adore the post card stamp...I think it adds a bit of vintage to any image you pair it with, which I'm a huge fan of.  When I first saw this deer image in the holiday catalog, I knew it had to be mine.  I love it as a Christmas image! 
For this card I used colors from The Dynamic Duos and the theme from The Friday Mashup.
I started by stamping the Post Card onto Vanilla CS and cutting the image out.  I added the evergreen sprigs and pinecones from the retired set Watercolor Winter.  I really, really loved this set and wish it hadn't been retired. There are so many cool images in it. 
Next, I stamped the deer from Remembering Christmas in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with heat and stick powder, heated it with my heat gun and then added the glitter.  Finally, I trimmed out the image. 
I added the "Merry" from Snowflake Soiree and "Christmas" from a Close To My Heart set called Say it in Style. 
Lastly, I layered a little piece of Early Espresso punched border under the postcard, added some linen thread and a naturals button before putting the whole thing together on an embossed piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and Always Artichoke card base.
Here's a complete list of my supplies.....

Paper: Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
