And...one of my favorite things about 2012 was my term on the Peachy Keen Design Team! So...I have one last card that I made, and since today is the official end of the year - I thought I would post one last card from my Design term year! The new team looks fabulous - and I can't WAIT to see what inspiration they bring us this next year! Anyway - I had been dying to use this sweet little deer, and decided to make a little birthday card with it:
I used two of the most recent monthly kits - the November one for the deer, and the second half of the sentiment:
And the December Kit for the Happy Birthday part of the sentiment:
I stamped the sweet little deer on some PTI Rustic cream cardstock, paper pieced the bow, and added a bit of color with my Copic markers - and used my white gel pen for freckles and some shine on the nose.
I used some pattern paper from Basic Grey's Lucille 6x6 paper pads (one of my current FAVS!), and made a lace border with a Martha Stewart edge punch.
Edges of everything were inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen, and vintage photo for the background darker layer.
I hand trimmed a banner for the sentiment, then stamped the happy birthday, and selectively inked just the "sweet lil' deer" to place underneath.
Used foam adhesive to attach the panel with the deer, as well as the sentiment banner, slightly overlapping.
Finished off with some jute twine, and a heart button from my stash, as well as a bit of bling.
Thanks so much! I think that will be all for today - but I will plan on stopping by tomorrow with one final un-posted card from 2012 - as well as a giveaway to welcome the new year!!!
