Hi, there, "deer" friend

I love this little set from Stampin' Up, but I just have a hard time coming up with a decent card using it. This is my second attempt using this set (the first ended up in the trash!) I used Bashful Blue for the base card, and Chocolate Chip and Barely Banana for the layers. The patterned paper is Cheeky from Making Memories. I used the SU eyelet border punch and SU Old Olive and Chocolate Chip markers to color the tree. The owl and rabbit are stamped in Chocolate Chip, cut out and popped up using dimensionals. The large pink flower is from Irene's Garden and the smaller orange and green flowers are Primas. The pink gem brad is from S.E.I.
The "Hi there" stamp is from Savvy Stamps. It's a little small for the space, but once it's on...it's on! :) The ribbon is from Michael's.
I guess it's okay, but I really need to practice with this set. Maybe I'll go check out the SCS gallery for some inspiration!

  12. adorable card! I love this set and use it for CAS cards but can't come up with anything else. But my son loves everything I create with it, so I guess he's gonna be seeing a lot of cards with this set only!
