Trying to complete the holiday cards I started this past season... Here's one I began in December:

I just finished it on Sunday.

Supplies and notes:

  • Snowflake sky made by inking Tim's small snowflakes with Distress Embossing Ink and embossing with Distress Antique Embossing Powder in Turquoise
  • Sky then dipped in DOx in Vintage Photo
  • The deer was from a goodie bag from The Funkie Junkie Boutique; I inked it with Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Ranger in Potting Soil
  • Vintage seam binding bow
  • Tim's die for the "Merry"
  • Torn scrap watercolor paper for the lower background
  • The ledger print paper as part of the mounting is from a generic paper pad
  • The blue mounting is cardstock by Recollections
That's it!

I'll share this at:


  1. That is quite the majestic deer standing in front of your wonderful embossed and smooshed background, Mimi. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.
