This card is perfect for a winter birthday and I also like that it can be used for a man or a woman - masculine cards can be so difficult sometimes! The base of the card is Pool Play card stock layered with Fresh Forest card stock. I stamped the Whip Cream card stock with one of the trees from the Nature Trees stamp set (love this set!) in Fresh Forest ink. To get the variations in color I inked up my stamp, stamped it and then stamped it again without reinking it. I used one of the circle stamps from Nature Trees stamped in Pool Play ink to make the ground. The doe from the You Deerly stamp set was stamped in Hazelnut Blend ink and cut out using the bundled die set for the stamp and my Journey Grand machine; I then popped her up with Journey Foam Squares. I stamped the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from the Many Wishes stamp set on Whip Cream card stock with Fresh Forest ink and hand cut the banner. I wrapped Natural Journey Twine around the Whip Cream card stock a few times and tied a bow; then added a Star Frame Element (FREE Bloom benefit item!! - page 5 in the catalog) embellishment to the bow. Finally, I added some sparkle to the card with Journey Sparkle Dust on the darker trees and back of the doe.
