"Deer" Me!

Isn't this just the cutest little stamp? This is part of the "Forest Friends" set from the current Spring Mini Catalogue. Along with the deer and tree shown here, there is also a rabbit and owl, all for under $25!

A word of warning ... this picture might be a little misleading. The finished card is actually made from a quarter sheet of A4, folded in half, so it is half the size of the cards I usually make (ie. the front is what I guess would be called A7, one-eighth of an A4 sheet). I feel I should point this out so you're aware that the images are quite small - the tree image for example is only 4.5cm tall.

This card took ages to make, even though it's so small, with all the design changes it went through. Originally I had stamped the tree in Rose Red on the Rose Red cardstock but it didn't stand out enough, then the greeting I had chosen originally didn't suit the style ... thankfully with advice from my kids we worked it out and this is the result.
