Fawning For You

Hello friends~ I've got a darling whimsical card that you'll fawn for.  Pun intended!

Here's a quick look at the products I used today:

Let's get started:

I created a matte frame  by cutting a large Poppystamps Pointed Rectangle Frame and another frame with a smaller opening using the next smaller sized frame die.  I saved the pointed frame for another project as I only needed the matte for this project.

Adhere the pointed frame to the top of the matte to create a matte frame.

I cut the Frantic Stamper Birch Tree Forest out of white cardstock and added a bit of color using Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.

I used Frantic Stamper Grassy Hill Edgers for the grass

and these Poppystamps Curious Fawn and Cute Fawn  cut from white cardstock and colored them using Copics.  I added some white gel pen dots for added detail.

 For a bit of whimsy, I cut the Memory Box Stitched Cloud Trio out of polka dotted vellum.

I started building the background of the card by adding the largest grassy hill and then adhered the birch trees over the top.

I then added the top layer of grass and tucked one of the deer behind the grass and one in front.  I used the cardinal that is part of the Frantic Stamper Birch Tree Forest and added him for a pop of color.  The polka dotted clouds are placed on top for a fun look.
