Have a wonderful Sunday, Deer....

Rachel here, to share with you some of the details of my current challenge card for the Anything Goes challenge!  The current challenge has a "Let It Snow" twist!!  Brrrrr!!!!!

This ended up being a bit of a thick card!!  lol!
I wanted to show dimensions with hills and trees!
I cut out 3- 4.25" x 5.5" pieces of white cardstock that I used
the Lawn Fawn Forrest Border die on at different heights.
I then stacked each layer with foam tape in between.
To give it a snow-like quality, I then dabbed tiny dots
of Stickles glitter glue all over. 

I used the colors W5, W3, & W1 to color the deer in.
I love the W's, they have a touch of brown to them,
and they are really great in between brown/gray color choice.

List of supplies-

Hopefully this gives you a little end-of-the-weekend inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

Daddy's Girl

Rachel here with you today, and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!  I wanted to share a card that put together using some awesome products from the 7 Kids College Fund shop!!

I have made a resolution this year to not put things off!!  So I decided to get a jump start on some cards for upcoming holidays.

This one would make a great Father's Day card-

This is Daddy's Girl from Saturated Canary!
Such a sweetie pie!

She has a ton of curly hair!
I used the colors E21, E25, E29
from my Copic markers.

The patterned paper is from Echo Park's
The image, banner, and hearts were cut from
The Lawn Fawn's Stitched Journal die set.
I stitched around the edges with my sewing machine.
(It's a miracle I haven't broken that machine
yet with all of my paper crafts!!  lol!)

Thanks for stopping by, and check out these and other products at the 7 Kid's College Fund shop!
