More watercolor pieces

You may remember my previous card that I put together with this pink watercolor panel that I had made. Using the left over pieces, I created this non-traditional Christmas card.

I ran the white cardbase through my machine using a Darice snowflake embossing folder. The die cuts, which are from the November Spellbinders Small Die of the Month kit are cut out of the watercolor panel pieces.

Although the deer can be cut from different color pieces, I kept it all the same here to create a uniform color. I added the little bow to her neck, also from the kit. But I used just the outline of the bow to keep it subtle.

Cut from the same watercolored panel, I adhered the sentiment to the top right hand corner.

This completes this simple, yet interesting Christmas card. I feel like I may be in better shape on cards this year if I can keep this up.
