Missing You Card in Red & Pink

Sometimes, when selecting a stamp to feature on a greeting card, taking a different approach to a favorite image can produce a nice result.  I used my beloved deer and fawn stamp by Stampibilities with the challenge to use red, pink and white on a card.  I used pencils (red and pink) to color them.  For the sentiment I stamped the tree (with Riding Hood Red ink) from Stampin’ Up’s Valentine set and cut it with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die, then trimmed away the bottom portion.  I painted “Miss You” and cut it out with a die from the same series.  The heart is a punch.  Main panel is matted with a pink from a die.  The border is SU dsp and an EK punch.I bunched up a bit of netting and knotted it under a Chatter Box button. j-3948DeerMissYou

  1. If you just told me about red and pink deer, I don’t think I would like it, but after seeing how you did it, I do like it. You really pulled this one off. I also like your painted sentiment. Enjoy your evening
