Christmas Deer- Three Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card for this week’s Just Add JAI190 Ink Just Add Masking and decided to use the PP171 Colors from The Paper Players and The Friday Mash Up! FM135 Animals withWoodgrain theme.

Each challenge has wonderful Design Teams as well as many entries for inspiration- I hope you will find the time to check them out!!

To create this card:
Stamp the deer image from Christmas Deer using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  Create a mask stamping the same image onto a piece of sticky note paper.  Cut out the image from the sticky note and place the mask over the deer.
Punch out a circle using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch from another sticky note and place the mask with the opening onto the cardstock and create the sun image using a Sponge Dauber with Crushed Curry Classic Ink.   Remove the mask and place the circle over the sponged sun  and lightly apply Tangerine Tango Classic Ink using Sponge Daubers over the sky.
Create additional masks using cardstock or sticky notes and apply Tangerine Tango Classic Ink lightly to create the snow banks.  Hold the mask in place on the background and stamp the line of trees using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.  Apply Frost White Shimmer Paint onver the snow (difficult to see in the photo :-)) and sponge the edges using Chocolate Chip Classic Ink.  
Use the Big Shot™ with the Deco Labels Framelits™ to cut out the image, layer onto the same size Deco Label frame from Chocolate Chip.  Cut the Chocolate Chip frame in half vertically and layer behind the focal image. 
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Sweater Weather DSP with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto a Chocolate Chip card base. 

Using a few small pieces of the Crushed Curry DSP onto Chocolate Chip cardstock strips to create the horizontal strips and add to the embossed background panel. 

Adhere the focal image onto the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals, add the die-cut snowflakes along with the retired Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button Brads along with the sentiment at the bottom to finish off the card.
