The challenge this week at Christmas Card Challenge was to use wood grain on the card. This turned out very non-traditional as far as color is concerned because I ran with the wood theme. It's pretty cute, though. I cut a window in the card base using a Spellbinder nestability die and then cut a hole in the wood grained paper (DCWV) with the next larger die. You can see below that there is a hole in the top layer. I stamped the deer through the window so it would be centered. I used Versamark ink and embossed it with black Martha Stewart embossing powder. I bought the stamps 2 or 3 Christmases ago at Michael's and I don't have the information about them anymore. The buttons are some I picked up at Tuesday Morning and the twine is Martha Stewart baking twine that was in my stash.
I used my Corner Chomper to round 2 of the edges and inked around some of the edges with Distress ink (vintage photo).
