Circle Deer Christmas Card

Howdy Crafters- I was at Splitcoast Stampers this week and viewed a tutorial on how to make a Shaker Card by Jeanne Jachna - Click HERE for tutorial. 
My card creation is NOT a Shaker Card, but it does follow the steps given to make a shaker card - which I followed except for the Foam, Transparency Sheet, and Shaker pieces. I will try to create a shaker card following this tutorial in the future when I get the correct supplies.

Never-the-less - I like the dimension of this card. I am pleased with my choice of just a touch of glitter glue added to make the lamp post light up. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day. ~ Gail ~
