Here is my Deer Christmas Card.

Susan (Cardmaker's Garret) is hosting this month and is the Queen of Christmas Cards all year round! She sell's her cards at a Christmas sale with the proceeds going to her favorite cause.
You are so generous and kind, my friend.

I die cut my Ali-Express deer and trees winter die cut (a gift from a special friend)
3 times and then stacked using SU Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Found this pretty monoprint stenciled background on Strathmore Mixed Media
in my stash. I thought it was similar to snow falling.
I used Distress Oxide inks,  but do not remember the colors.

I used TCW Corn Cob Etching Stencil for my monoprint background.
Attached to 4 1/4" square SU Whisper White Thick card base.

Thank you Susan for a wonderful challenge.  I loved how my card turned out.
You still have until the 24th to play along. Hugs..

  4. I love how your card turned out, Nancy! Such a beautiful monoprint background in wonderful colours. Thanks so much for making a card for the challenge I'm hosting at CAS Christmas. And thank you for the compliment you paid me!

    1. Your very welcome my dear friend. You are so deserving of kindness. Hugs..Nancy

  5. Your monoprint is so pretty. Mine end up in the trash. I love the design and soft color.

    1. Mine rarely get trashed, Brenda. It seems most can be partially or mostly used for backgrounds and die cuts. Some that I did not like have become my favorites when used with the right project:-) I love that! Surprises are always fun! I always appreciate your comments, my friend. Hugs..Nancy

  6. It's definitely suggestive of falling snow, but some of the prettiest falling snow I've seen! What a beautiful and peaceful woodland scene you created, Nancy. So nice to have all your wonderful backgrounds in your stash to choose from. Love the die, too!

    1. Thank you Leslie. Always fun when the rejects you have saved work so beautifully in other projects:-) Hugs..Nancy

  10. Wow, such a beautiful, soft, and dreamy mono print background, Nancy! I love the colors you used! The stenciling does look like falling snow. The die-cut deer and trees have fabulous dimension and the square shape is perfect for this scene!
