Walking in a Winter Wonderland with The Paper Players

Greetings, Stampers! I am just back from a week's vacation in Florida and feel so rested. The weather was just glorious. Now it's time to get back to reality, and get ready for the holidays which are fast approaching.

Today at The Paper Players, Jaydee is our hostess and she has a clean and simple challenge for us: Walking in a Winter Wonderland. I need to get serious about finishing up my Christmas cards so this was a welcome challenge.

I've inked up a new Mama Elephant stamp set for the first time. I love the sweet deer images. It wasn't until after I finished my card that I realized my sentiment had some of the lyrics to "Walking in a Winter Wonderland". I love when that happens! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Winter Wonderland (Mama Elephant)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Patterned Paper: Sunkissed (Doodlebug)
Ink Pads: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red, Coastal Cabana (Stampin' Up)
Tools: Big Shot, Winter Wonderland Dies (Mama Elephant), Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn)

Thanks for visiting! Please pay a visit to the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Playersand we'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs!

The cut-out sweet dear images are so adorable! The red-striped paper makes the card totally festive, doesn't it?

Oh, this is fabulous Sandy! Love how the candy cane paper sets off the otherwise clean design. Those deer are adorable and I like how you've layered them together. Fabulous card, my friend! Glad you are back--we missed you!

Sandy, this is beautiful. the red with the beautiful deer and the little touches of pool add so much interest and create a fabulous scene - but it is still so CAS. Love it, my friend. Thank you for rocking my challenge!
