Holiday Wishes Deer - SSS Holiday Card Kit

Hello! Okay...I feel like I'm saying a lot lately how excited I am about different releases, but the fact is - I really AM excited about them all! The other day a surprise package landed in my mailbox - and when I opened it, imagine my excitement and delight to find a Special Limited Edition Holiday Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp - and it is a seriously AMAZING kit! (You can check out the entire kit HERE - and I've linked some of the individual elements that I used on my card below as well).

I pulled out elements from this card kit to put this fun winter card together:

I started off by using the fun Tim Holtz layering stencil in the kit, and a couple of the distress inks to blend together for the trees in the background. Once I had the color down, I added some of the Grit Paste (also included in the kit) through the second layer of the stencil to create the snow - also laying a bit down on the ground for the deer to stand on.

While that dried, I die cut the deer in Cream and Dark Chocolate cardstock, and layered them together slightly offset for a dimensional effect. I also tied a bit of the included twine in the kit around the neck, and used some of the Red Stickles to add a Rudolph nose!

I stamped the sentiment with some Dark Chocolate ink, and then used white pigment ink to add some tiny snowflakes from the included stamp set to the background.

Finally, layered up the front panel with some more Dark Chocolate cardstock, and some of the Authentique pattern paper in the kit.

Here is a peek at the entire kit:
