Deer Christmas

We have had a lovely day here in Melbourne today. The weather is beginning to cloud over now and rain is indeed forecast for this evening but the sun has been shining for most of the day. And the Spring veggie garden has yielded its first real fruit of the season - tomatoes, cucumber and spring onions ( as well as plenty of lettuce varieties ) all ripe for the picking!
Today's card for the Paper Craft Crew sketch

Such a great sketch! I do hope you have time to stop by The Paper Craft Crew and see the great cards by the Team this week to inspire you.

And my card was made with my Brother-in-law in mind. He and my sister live in almost rural New Zealand and he occasionally gets the opportunity to go hunting in the forests looking for wild deer….not that I think he's had a great deal of success - just the thrill of the chase :-)

Of course there will be no snow in New Zealand this Christmas - it will be Summer! But they can always dream :-)

There are many directions you can go with this sketch and I decided to make a scene :-) The lovely Stag and birds and coloured using the Blendabilities markers and the snow drops are first stamped and then filled with some Silver Dazzling Details for some sparkle! 

Card stock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Designer Series Paper: All Is Calm
Inks: Momento tuxedo Black, Blendabilites markers: coastal Cabana, cherry Cobbler and Neutrals
Stamps: White Christmas
Accessories: Silver Dazzling Details, Small Star punch (retired), Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I do hope you have time to check out all the great inspiration from the rest of the Team at The Paper Craft Crew and maybe you might be the next to enter the challenge?

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. What a gorgeous wintery & Christmassy scene Jan!! Love the banners in the corner! -Katerina

    1. Thank you very much Katerina! Love that the set has so much variety :-)

  2. Love the little scene you have created here Jan. Beautiful card. I'll definitely have to find some time to enter this one. The sketch made me think of a postcard when I first saw it. Too bad I don't have that stamp (yet LOL) because I would have used it for the challenge. Take care.

    1. Thanks so much Louise :-) I will look forward to seeing your card...and yes, Postcard is still on my list this year too :-)
