And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Christmas Deer

Hello dear friends!  Happy Monday morning…hope you had a wonderful weekend.  In spite of all the hustle and bustle, I managed to squeeze in a few challenges, one of which was the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Laine Webb (A.K.A. Crafterlaine) has a wonderful gallery full of inspiration.  I chose her Forest Friends center step card to CASE.

Creative Nugget:   The card fold was changed using the following measurements:  Two pieces of card stock are needed…one piece measuring 5 1/4" X 11" and scored at 5 1/4", 6 1/4", 9", and 10" and the other measuring 3 3/4" X 6 1/4" and scored at 4 1/4", and 5 1/4".  Decorate the panels, fold and adhere.  Here is a side view of this card which folds flat for mailing:

All stamps and dies used on this card are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Peaceful Deer image was colored with Copic Markers and splattered with watered down acrylic paint.  The panel was cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle Die.  The snow drifts were made with a Leafy Edged Border Die.  Sparkling Snowflakes were stamped, cut with the matching Snowflake Die, and glittered with Stickles.   The Merry Christmas die cuts were also glittered.  Ribbon and some rhinestone stickers were added to finish the card.

This card will also be submitted for the following challenges:
Just Us Girls #322 Word Week - Merry
Addicted to Stamps and More #173 - Holiday
Pile It On #98 - Anything Christmas/Winter
Crafty Girls Creations #10 - Anything Goes
Mod Squad Challenge - Ingredients: (Color, Sparkle/Bling, Die Cuts) and (Faux Stitching, Rubber Stamp, Glitter/Bling)

Thanks so much for stopping by…enjoy your day!

I see that my birthday sister, Nancy has left you a comment. It is wonderful the people that you meet doing creative things and inspiring others. Your card is certainly inspiring. Love the image and the step card. I have never tried that, should really do it someday.
Good luck and thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad this week.
