Peaceful Deer Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

If you plan on mass-producing your Christmas Cards this year, I hope you’ll give the Peaceful Deer stamp set a look.

With it’s nature-filled images, you can build a scene with deer, trees, and more. Add snowflakes to make it a wintry tableau. Then choose from Christmas and friendship greetings to complete your project.  Quick and easy!

To create this card, I took Card Sketch #10 from my Card Sketch Library, and turned it from a Portrait design to a Landscape design. To add a bit of depth to the patterned paper layer, I stamped some of the trees from the stamp set.

Then to take the card up a big notch, I used one of our iridescent foil Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments and then layered the stamped mat to a piece of Red Velvet Paper. In person, it’s such an elegant card!
