christmas card set - flora and fauna

OK. Ready for fauna and a little flora? And gobs of whimsy? Here's my favorite Christmas-card-set-as-neighbor-gift. (The decorated envie flaps help too I suppose... ) I pulled out my Flora and Fauna arsenal of stamps and my Altenew ink cubes and this happened.

Without further ado... here's numero uno.

Numero dos. With only one doe (tee hee hee). And heat embossed snow (tee hee hee, that you can barely see)  OK I'll stop.

Numero tres. With some subtle gold dots up top.

Numero quatro.

And numero cinco, definitely not for mass production, but fun to create. Once again I went for the stamping-around-masked-shape design. As long as you fill in most of the edge of the shape, your brain does the rest and "sees" the shape for you. Love how the triangle shapes mimic the shape of evergreens. Just a touch of gold embossing on the little ovals. And that little deer ..... aaahhhhh.

Have a favorite?

I'm headed over to these challenges:
