Dashing Deer in Winter Woods - a Christmas card

This deer seems to be weaving in and out of some saplings!  The wintry scene was so simple to make that I made another one!

The greeting for this Christmas card featuring a Detailed Deer weaving between saplings in a Winter Wood
is from the Christmas Pines stamp set
I stamped a row of trunks from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Smoky Slate cardstock with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint (I roll the Shimmer Paint onto the stamp with a sponge roller).  I used my heat tool to set/dry the paint and  then I used a paint brush and some Whisper White Craft ink to highlight the trees, smudging with my finger from time to time to blend a bit.

I used a craft knife to cut down each side of some of the trees, just in the middle of the piece.  I found the easiest way to weave the deer through the trees was bottom first!  Once he was in position, I simply attached him with a couple of glue dots.

With my snips, I cut a random curvy top a piece of spare white cardstock, put a line of glue on the back of the curvy top and slid it under the deer's feet before securing it into position.  I added a subtle shadow under the deer's feet with a small brush and a little Smoky Slate ink.

Having stamped the greeting, I trimmed the piece to size and attached it to the front of the Basic Black card.
