"Oh Deer, I missed your birthday!" Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Guess what day it is... it's Friday! Woot woot! And today I have yet another card for the latest Lawnscaping Challenge. Have I mentioned how much I just love the Lawn Fawn critters? Well I do! And I've been having a blast playing with some of my older critter sets.

I always seem to be short-handed when it comes to belated birthday cards. And while I try to stay on top of everyone's birthday.. well let's face it, I'm human and I forget birthdays too sometimes. So for today's card, I used the deer and "oh deer" sentiment from the "Into the Forest" set by Lawn Fawn.

I started off by cutting a 3 x 3" square out of the quilted pattern paper included in the new Sweater Weather 6x6 paper pack. I then used the grassy border die cut to cut a piece of green/teal pattern from the same paper pack and out of vellum. I stamped the log using ColorBox "Chestnut Roan" chalk ink and fussy cut it out leaving a white border. I decided to turn the log into a tree, so I stamped the leaf image several times in SSS Sunshine, Orange Peel and Schoolhouse Red dye inks.For the deer, I stamped her directly onto some Kraft cardstock and lined the edges with my E42 Copic Marker. I then adhered all of my layers onto my focal panel using glue adhesive.

For the cardbase, I stamped the Hero Arts "Canvas" Background using SSS Khaki dye ink. I then adhered my focal panel onto the cardbase using foam tape. I tied bow out of some teal hemp twine by Lawn Fawn to add some interest and pull in the teal color from the grass. 

For the inside of the card, I used "Violet's ABCs" to stamp "I Missed Your Birthday." I thought this went really well with the cute "Oh Deer" sentiment. 

And that wraps up my card for today! Pretty CAS birthday card with an Autumn-feel. Thanks again for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend! ♥
