Great Masculine Birthday Card with Little Deer!

Hello Everyone!
I just wanted to share with you a great card that Soni Larson made for her son!  I just love it!

As I said before, these deer dies have become so very popular and for good reason.  We used them on Christmas cards and they make great masculine nature themed cards.

Supplies used: 

Dies:  Impression Obsession small deer set, Impression Obsession fir trees and fir tree border,
          Spellbinders classic nesting ovals
Embossing folder:  Sizzix snow
Card stock:  Soni used some special pre-embossed "bark" card stock and "wood" card stock for the deer

Thanks for "stamping" by,

Love is in the Air

I received this great card from a good friend and stamping buddy, Carol Chiaramonte the other day and wanted to share it with you.  I just loved the idea of using your printed card stock for the focal point.  And in this cases you can even use your scraps!!!

And for the inside, Carol punched out two hearts from the same paper so that it coordinates with the design on the front.  How clever; Carol always thinks and creates "outside the box".

Now, I am sure you have LOTS of scraps.  We all do!  You can now use this idea and create a card for ANY occasion!  And this idea can be used when you want to make a set of cards as a gift.  You will be able to make a set in almost no time and surprise someone with a wonderful, hand made gift!  (I was thinking, that this would make a great set of thank you notes;  and everyone can use thank you notes!)

Thanks so much Carol!  I always look forward to your cards!  You rock!

And thank you for "stamping" by,
