Merry Christmas, Deer Ones (Kathy Berger)

Merry Christmas, Deer Ones
by Kathy Berger

I am getting a more serious start on my Holiday cards and wanted to make a special one for a special aunt. I was inspired by a card by Pam Sim ( and wanted to make a similar card.

With the exception of the lacy border die by Spellbinders, this card uses only Frantic Stamper dies, starting with the Horizontal Birch Panel. I tucked the kraft doe and buck into the woods, and then affixed the panel and the deer to a white glitter background (which appears a little pink because of the way the early morning light was reflecting).

That glittery panel was mounted to a lacy border, and then to a green panel, a bit of Christmas print with a gross-grain bow tied around it, another lacy border, and finally the card itself, which was made out of 120 lb. card-stock.

I finished the card off with a green script Merry Christmas and some green sprigs of holly with red berries and a couple of small cardinals.

I hope you have enjoyed my card. I had a wonderful time making it, creating a simple wintery scene for Christmas.
