Showing off my deer dies

This past year, I have been adding several NBUS deer dies to my die collection. So far, I owned only one (plain) deer die, the baby deer on the card in the middle. I'm happy I'm getting a chance to use them all so soon.

I had a single 6x6 sheet left of this muted pink patterned paper. I had used the sheets from the paper pad on my Christmas cards last year. So to make the most of my sheet, I cut it into three 2-inch strips, stamped the trio of trees from a Stamper's Anonymous set in a brown-grey ink and also blended a little ink around the panel and adhered each panel onto a white mat before adding the panels to my card bases. I die cut the deer from plain white cardstock and blended two colours of brown ink from the top and bottom. To finish off, I used a mix of previously stamped and die cut sentiments (Christmas Word Mix, SSS).

I'm linking up my cards at:
