A Very Fawny Holiday

Hi Friends,

The Holiday Inspiration week continues at the Lawn Fawn Blog. Today, the sets featured are Ornate Ornaments and Critters in the Snow.  So in honor of a Very Fawny Holiday, here’s what I came up with:

DSC_0279

This is a card that I’ve had in my mind for a long time.  Sometimes I get ideas when I’m out walking (my exercise of choice), and then I have to really focus so that I don’t forget the idea. (I usually, well, in fact, I never carry a sketchpad when I’m out walking).  So I had this idea in my mind after a walk one day.  I actually made 3 different versions of it, and this is my favorite. 

I used several sets from Lawn Fawn.  I just love the dear from Critters in the Snow and putting a scarf (from Winter Bunny) just seemed to work so well. I embossed the snowflakes in white (from the Critters in the Snow set) and then distressed with Ranger Broken China Distress ink.  The trees from Critters in the Forest were actually stamped on green paper and accents added with my Copics.  The sentiment came from Bows and Holy.  (I’ve said it before and will likely say it again, I love how easy it is to combine various Lawn Fawn sets.) I added some Crystal stickles to the snowy ground, parts of the tree and centers of snowflakes for a little sparkle.  I did spritz the background with shimmer, but it’s impossible to capture in my limited photography skills. 

If you haven’t yet, head over the Lawn Fawn blog to see the other samples for the design team. It’s sure to put you in the holiday mood (it is a little tough here, the temps were around 70 today!) 

Thanks for stopping by

Hugs and blessings

I love this winter scene! You have perfectly placed the trees to frame everything and using winter bunny's scarf on the reindeer is brilliant!!! He really looks like he is flying through the air with that long scarf trailing behind him. I love everything about this one. I haven't actually used my reindeer yet but I'm going to now! :) Thanks for the inspiration!

Lynette, this is adorable! Love how you shaded the reindeer! May I ask where I can find the (punched or die-cut) bracket that you used as a border at the top? I've seen it several places, but noone identifies it! Can you help?
