Hello friends, it’s Christy here with a sweet card featuring our brand-new, just released Forest Fawns stamp set. I love all animals, but woodland critters have my heart. These adorable little deer make me want to crawl right into the world that they inhabit and live there! Doesn’t it seem so tranquil?

For this card, I started by coloring the images with Copic markers and trimming them out with the coordinating  Forest Fawns dies. Then I needed a background to bring this scene to life, so I did a quick and easy watercolor background using Distress Oxide Inks. I did the sky with Salvaged Patina and the ground with Mowed Lawn, and where the two colors met, I got a little wicking, which gives the look of tufts of grass. Fun, right?

I trimmed that panel down to be 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered it to a Kraft card base with foam tape for a bit of dimension. Then I got to work on my sentiment. I cut the Love You Words dies from both Kraft and dark brown cardstock and layered the pieces together. Then I white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment onto a little strip. I glued those down to my card front with liquid glue and then added my images to complete the scene.

If you’d like to see how this card came together, I have a full process video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty, complete with Copic color combos.
