Fall Card With Nature's Beauty Stamp Set

I love the Nature's Beauty stamp set.  Not only does it have detailed wildlife and plants and trees, but it's so versatile!  Use it for fall cards, or Christmas cards - even baby cards with that cute bunny!  This is a set you will want to purchase.  On top of it being a great stamp set, Stampin' Up! donates $3.00 of every sale toward Mental Health Organizations.

I've stamped the beautiful deer on an oval piece of Crumb Cake card stock and made it the focus of the card.  The sentiment is from Gather Together stamp set and the paper is Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.  Both are part of the Gather Together bundle featured on page 47 of the 2019 Holiday Catalog.
