Nature Sings at Christmas

 I've had the Nature Sings stamp set and this piece of DSP from the Under the Mistletoe DSP set sitting on my desk waiting for inspiration to strike so I can use them in a card together.  Well, inspiration struck as I though about the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches this week. The DSP has deer or reindeer standing among pine branches so I added the large caribou stamped on a piece of Old Olive Cardstock surrounded by pine branches.  It is all layered on a piece of Whisper White embossed with the Softly Falling folder so they are in the snow.

 I love how easy it is to create a coordinating card with Stampin' Up! products.  When you use a piece of DSP and then use the same colors of ink and cardstock as the colors used in the DSP, you can't go wrong.  I also like to carry the coordination onto the inside of the card.  This time I used the same coordinating colors and the pine branch image.

Make sure you head over to Freshly Made Sketches 347 and WWC180 to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.

  1. Lovely holiday card! Glad you shared it at FMS!

  2. I love that Softly Falling embossing folder you've used for your background, Angel. It certainly makes that gorgeous DSP from the Under the Mistletoe DSP stand out. Nature Sings is one of my favourite Christmas sets. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  3. What a great card! I love the deer and the embossed background! Love the sentiment too! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
