April 2020 Week 3 or 15th Week of 52 CCT blog with theme of forest and deer

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! The 3rd week of every month for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is a theme prompt type challenge and our DT host for April, Hali, has chosen an interesting combination of forest and deer.

She wants to see both on your Christmas card(s)! Luckily I had this great collection from Pink Paislee called "Together for Christmas" that has the patterned cardstocks, striped washi tape, the scalloped-edge die-cut and the tree die-cut! Perfect for this theme!

#15-2020 Deer in the forest card for my DT commitment with 52 CCT=

Some additional design notes:
a. clear gems, gold glitter decorative tape have been in stockpile for over 1 year
b. graph grid index card scrap= Pen + Gear purchased at Wal-Mart in the office/planner supply section
c. white with gold edge metallic foil "Merry Christmas" sentiment is a dazzle sticker from Paper Wishes website (comes from a set of sheets that are a variety of foils)
d. foam dot adhesives in different sizes to lift up the die-cuts
e. I chose to use triangles for the 2 papers and have the diagonal center area to repeat the points of the trees' branches but also to allude to mountains and hillsides--clever of me, don't you think?!?!!!
