I've been finalizing my projects for my classes this weekend, so I've been having fun stamping my heart out!
Today's card uses the Holiday Catalog set, Remembering Christmas, is a different way:
The neatest feature of this card I CASED from this card I showed you HERE. Meg Wheeler used one of the Clear-Mount Perfectly Placed Guides to create her "bullseye/scope" effect, so I repeated it for my card. I put the guide on my copier, copied it 6 times, then cut out all 6 of the guides I needed to cover one sheet of copy paper. I was then able to copy them onto a piece of 8 1/2 x 11" Very Vanilla. After cutting each "bullseye" with my Paper Trimmer, I then stamped the deer on it with Chocolate Chip ink and my Stamp-a-majig.
After the deer was stamped I then added my "camo" look by stamping three different stamps from Gorgeous Grunge around him with Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake ink. I finished my dirty-hunting look with Crumb Cake sponged all around the edges.

"You're the BEST" is actually the "Thank You You're the BEST" stamp from Hello Lovely. After stamping in Chocolate Chip ink I hand-cut with my Paper Snips, omitting the "thank you". It is adhered with SNAIL adhesive to the Garden Green Modern Label that I sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I flanked the greeting with two Chocolate Chip Candy Dots from the Neutrals package. The label is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to the cut-down-snipped-and-frayed piece of 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon. I adhered the Burlap Ribbon to the card front with Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.
I always have the hardest time deciding what to stamp on the inside of my card, but this time was no problem! I continued the "camo" look with the Gorgeous Grunge stamps and the "you make me happy", which is also from Hello, Lovely!
That's all for now! Thanks so much for stopping in to see my creation today!
