Oh Deer . . . what a cute Christmas card

I absolutely LOVE the way that this card turned out, and it was so simple to make.  I started with some white cardstock and my Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set.  I stamped the deer onto a scrap of white cardstock and then cut him out.



Then I torn down the length of the paper.  I am going to use this as a mask on the card.



On a plain white card I placed the torn piece of paper down, and then put the deer that I cut out in white layered over that.  Now I began to use my blue ink pad to softly add some blue in a circular motion.  You can see some of the blue got on the deer's legs.  Not a problem . . . this one was just a mask and not the final deer on the card.



When I removed the torn paper and the deer that were masking the card, it looked like the sky meeting a snow drift, and you can see the space where the deer will stand.



Then I stamped the deer on to the card and colored him in.



I had some small round red rhinestones, and I applied on to his nose so he would look like Rudolph.

I stamped the inside with a simple Merry Christmas.  This card was quick and easy,  Tomorrow I will share another variation on this idea that I created.  Make sure to stop back!
