Birthday Deer

I spent Saturday morning working on this card, which turned out to be a real gem. I made it for a little girl turning 5, with whom I share a birthday! She's a super crafty kiddo and she loved it... warms my heart!

I started with a white card base (5x5)
- a blue mat (4.75 x 3), edges inked in broken china
- lime green paper piece (4.75 x 2), which I ran through the Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder and distressed on top, inked with crushed olive
- three 2" circles in yellow, gold, and orange. I layered these to form a sun and glued it beneath the green

Next I cut 2 clouds from Create a Critter in cream at 1.25" - one regular, and one using the Flip function. I ran them through the Xyron; once they were covered with adhesive, I coated them with Doodlebug's Crushed Velvet flocking in white. LOVE THESE (and so did the little girl!)

The next piece was the deer from Cindy Loo. I cut this using 4 different shades of Bazzill Bling and DCWV adhesive-backed cardstocks, at 2.75".

Finally, time to put it all together!

So happy with the end result. It's been a while since I got to do a fun card!
Thanks for reading!xoxo
