Winter Woods & Deer holiday cards

Ahhh, I love this scene! The deer are just so peaceful and delicate in the lightly falling snow. As soon as I spotted this new background stamp from Stampin’ Up’s 2023 holiday mini catalog, I couldn’t wait to play with it!

PRO TIP: I ended up CUTTING it (yes, the actual rubber stamp!) and I love how it turned out!

The stamp itself is horizontal with three deer and their background all one piece.

I trimmed off the stag on the right hand side so he is separate and can be used to stamp singly, inside, or on the envelope! If I ever want to use all three together again I can just line them up like a puzzle piece on a large clear block. If you wanted, you could cut apart just the left hand doe as well. I love customizing my stamps to my own needs with a few careful snips.

The stamp is not just for winter, either! Here is is done up as a summer or fall card. I stamped grass from the Oceanfront stamp set and colored the “snow” like ground with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. I think it works pretty well, actually!

Did I convince you Graceful Deer needs a permanent place in your collection? I thought so! Get it here.
