A Red Deer

Just as the residents of Wisconsin are ready to turn in their heavy winter coats for light jackets to welcome the spring weather, the whitetail deer change their coats from a dingy dark brown to a lighter, reddish summer coat.

I was inspired by the beautiful, bright color palette at the the March Altenew Inspiration Challenge and brought out the Modern Deer and Beautiful Day Stamp Sets to create a fun card that I *think* pairs two sets together that wouldn't normally be on the same card for a lovely effect.

I started with some tone on tone stamping on a brick card base the beautiful flowers from Peony Boquet and then layered a white panel with a stamped background from Beautiful Day in yellow and then a red deer from Modern Deer. I finished with a sentiment die cut from the Majestic Blooms Die Set.


  1. Wowie, the red deer is beautiful, and the balance on this card is so inspiring! A keeper!! Hugs!

  2. A wonderful combination of florals with that sweet deer, Karen! Fantastic card!

  3. Karen this is beautiful! I love the reds, yellows and oranges together. I for one am all about welcoming the Spring weather. This winter has been crazy with the lingering snow. We have hopefully one last snow fall tomorrow and that should do it!
