Deer and Butterflies

It’s Friday!  I am so happy it is my last day of work and I am looking forward to the three day weekend.  How about you?  I have a simple scene card to share today made with Memory Box and Poppy Stamps  dies. I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It challenge to use the color green.

I die cut the Orchard Tree Frame out of Old Olive cardstock and colored the limbs and branches with a Vintage Photo Distress Marker.  I die cut two Grassland Borders, crimped them both to add a little texture and cut them to fit directly behind the frame. I applied tiny strips of mounting tape to the back edges of the frame and attached it to the white card base.

I cut the deer images using kraft cardstock and lightly watercolored them using ink from the Vintage Photo marker.  I cut the three images a part so I could arrange them to fit well in the frame. I cut several orange and peach flowers and butterflies using the Flower Mound die and the Butterfly Delights die and arranged them in the scene to add touches of color.  I really like how the greens, browns and oranges pop against the all white base. I think the Orchard Tree Frame is the perfect way to frame a nature scene.

This is the second time I have used the deer on a card and I really think they are special and unique cut images. I think I’m going to have to try my hand at a winter Christmas card with them soon.  It’s never too late to start holiday cards.

Have a great holiday weekend.  I hope you get a chance to get your fingers inky.
