I loved the Wishes & Wonder bundle the moment I saw it in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog! Once it came in my happy mail, it took a while to conjure an idea. I usually go to Pinterest and search the set I want to use. I saw a lot of wonderful and just stunning cards-but I wanted to make mine a little different! Then it hit me!! Door tags, buffalo plaid, and a majestic deer!
The color scheme then was simple! I wanted it to have a farmhouse Christmas vibe to it! The tag die that is included in the coordinating North Pole Wonders dies was perfect to resemble those cute door tags! It has just the right amount of texture to it and a fun trim edge! I then randomly stamped the mistletoe on the Smoky Slate card base and then adhered a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp.
There is a circle die that cuts out this adorable “Made in the North Pole” stamp! I added the deer cut out with Gold Foil and matching gold cord.
That was it! This is a card for my Stamp a Stack of Christmas cards in 2 weeks! You can purchase the items and make a ton in no time! Spend $50 or more and I will send you a thank you gift from me!
Are you as obsessed with the Buffalo Check craze as I am? When I saw the Buffalo Check Background stamp, I bought it with my first order! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and I love how it turned out!
I highly recommend to buy the wood mount with background sets. I like that they stamp a much more even and crisp image.
TIP: ink your stamp with your color of choice and lay your stamp rubber side up. Place your paper on top of the rubber. Then, pull your grid paper (or a piece of scratch paper) and rub all over to get an even image. And no ink on you!
To make the sentiment pop, I used the marker to rubber method. I always huff on it before stamping the image too! To finish it off, I used the 1/8″ Real Red ribbon and Burlap ribbon to make it look farmhouse!

I just think of a nice fire with a cup of hot cocoa on a cold winters day with this card! I have fallen in LOVE with the NEW Buffalo Check Background stamp! I made this card for the Christmas Stamp a Stack last weekend and it was a hit!
I always buy the wood for the background stamps for their sturdiness. I usually prefer clear mount on all my other stamps. To make your image clear and complete; ink up the whole background stamp with Memento Black Ink (used here) with the rubber facing up. Take your cardstock and place it on top. Use the one side of your grid paper (scratch paper) and fold it over on top of the stamp and cardstock. Then take your hand and rub it over to insure the image is all on your cardstock. The best part is the ink is not on your hand!
The 5/8″ Striped Burlap Ribbon was the perfect choice to add some rustic texture to this card! The Red Basic Rhinestones are a nice final touch! Some people put their Red Rhinestones on the nose of the deer! (face palm, duh!)
