In the Lane

I am trying to catch up on the number of Christmas cards I normally have completed by this time of year. I have a long way to go considering it is August already and this is only card #4.

After seeing several cards using the Pretty Pink Posh Storybook dies, I decided I needed at least one to try. I think I'm hooked. I combined it with another stitched die to make the cover, stamping the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland set using Pure Poppy ink. I completed the base with a combo of Sno Cone cardstock to represent the sky, stamping the trees from the same set using Smokey Gray ink and then the bird and nest. I added the snowy hills cut from white textured cardstock using My Favorite Things Stitched Valley dies. After securing the storybook and background pieces together I stamped the deer from the same stamp set and cut out with the matching Winter Wonderland dies, attaching with foam tape. Lastly, I added the Essentials by Ellen Prize Stag cut from kraft cardstock and a couple of enamel dots.

Products: Mama Elephant stamps and dies, PTI, Bazzill and MFT cs, Doodlebug Enamel Dots, MFT, Pretty Pink Posh and Ellen Hutson dies, PTI, Simon Says and Versafine ink

I am submitting this for the Ellen Hutson Calling All Artists Pin-Sights Challenge.

I hope your week is off to a great start. Thank you for stopping by my humble little abode here on the 'net!
