  • More Sale Items. I stamped this adorable deer, cropped him with the Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies (and snipped his antlers since the dies crop two deer at a time with a fold at the top). I colored him with a mix of Stampin’ Blends (Crumb Cake, Petal Pink, Real Red and Smoky Slate). I cropped the sentiment with a circle from my Layering Circles Framelits Dies.
