      For my project today, I’ve created a small 4x4 card using some brayer 'run off' ink as a background. I have lots of these small pieces of inked card following an experiment with gel plates, I love this 'no waste' crafting.
      Once trimmed to size I stamped some small Cardio deer and trees in black Versafine ink, layered it up on a thin black mat and glued it to the white card blank. To add a little more definition I used a white gel pen to highlight the trees and deer. There is no room for a greeting on the outside so that will have to go inside, cards this size could also be used as gift tags if necessary.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
The 12 Months Of Christmas - #79 Anything Christmas Goes
The Holly and Ivy - #97 Anything Christmas Goes
Merry Little Christmas - #36 Anything Christmas Goes
Dragonfly Dreams - Christmas In July
Send A Smile 4 Kids - Christmas In July
