Use your Christmas stamps for things other than Christmas – Bugaboo digistamps Deer Duo anniversary card

Use your Christmas stamps for more than Christmas. Anniversary card made with Bugaboo Digistamps Deer Duo. Coloring Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils. Created by Paperesse.

Christmas stamps aren't just for Christmas, like this Bugaboo Deer Duo digital stamp that I've used as the focal point for my husband's anniversary card (today is our 11th anniversary). There's no reason why winter scenes should be regulated just to the Holidays. They're great for winter birthdays, anniversaries and 'just because'.

The paper is from Tactile Studio (formerly Sassy Designs) and is the Tartan digital paper pack. The font I used for my sentiment is Tekton Bold.

What do you think about the diecut on the side? It's new from Marianne Craftables CR1280 and today is it's first outing. Again, this is a die that's great for Christmas and the rest of the year.

I've used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2:
