STAMPlorations Christmas Release Day 2

Hello Crafty Friends!

STAMPlorations are doing a Christmas in August Release. They are relesing 6 stamp sets and 8 CUTplorations dies and, of course, are celebrating in style with a Blog Hop, welcome to Day 2.

Today we are showcasing a stylish set designed by Deepti under her label Dee's Artsy Impressions. It is called Yuletide Deer and great for giving Christmas cards a modern twist.

As my DT project, I went for a card of the modern variety with a collage stamped background. Here it is:

I stamped, coloured and fuzzy cut the deer, collage stamped my background in light grey, added the deer and sentiment from Deepti's set and finished off with twine and a little bell.

Here is Deepti's new set in full:
