Woodland Deer Christmas Card

Here is a unique winter scene with a majestic deer.
I paired this with a holiday greeting.

I love that it is a night time scene.  And look at the little owl and bird on the antlers.

Here is a quick tip video for this card process.

I Care Vellum Feather Card

This beautiful feather project was done with vellum paper.
It turned out so pretty.


Sentiment:  I want you to know I care.

This can be for so many occasions like thinking of you, get well, sympathy, miss you, support and more.

Just add a little trimming to finish.
