Christmas Card ~ A Critter Christmas (post #1)

I have a thank you post for you today.
I would like to thank Kelly Marie and Mike from Lawn Fawn for this generous blog candy.
In October I was one of the lucky inspiration week comment winners at the Lawn Fawn blog.
I was able to pick ANY stamp set and Lawn Cuts (die set) I wanted.
This was an extremely difficult task as they have some real cute stamp sets there and to be able to pick a die set too all I can say is wow.
I fell in love with the sweet animals on the Critters In the Forest stamp set and just knew the tree would come in handy for lots of fun projects.
I picked its matching die cut set so I can use it to cut the stamped objects out if needed.

My little critters are enjoying their newly decorated Christmas tree and a little critter company.
I stamped the tree three times, cut out each tree tier separately then layered them using foam tape.
Next I added a little snow to its top and some rhinestone ornaments.
All the sweet little critters were stamped on colored cardstock, cut and attached with foam tape.
I hand cut the snowy ground and sponged up the edges to give it dimension.
I love how these little cuties turned out.

May your day always be filled with love.
