Fa La La La - Lawnscaping Challenge No. 96

Here is Lawnscaping Challenge No. 96 - Merry Christmas, below are the challenge photos:

I decided to mix & match different Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create this cute Christmas card.

First of all, I created this Fa La La La background using Milo's ABC's set. I lined up these alphabet stamps and stamped them on white cardstock with Versamark ink pad, then gold embossed these words to create the background. For the focal image, I cut out a square white cardstock and stamped the deer (from Into the Woods set) and two little birds (from the Winter Sparrows set) with black Memento ink pad. I colored them with Copic markers. I stamped these two little birds again on another white cardstock, colored with Copics, and cut them out. On the square white cardstock, I applied rubber cement on the deer and two birds to mask them. Then, I applied different colors of Distress ink pads on the background to resist. I also sprayed a thin coat of Tsukineko sparkle shimmer spray to make it shiny. After the paper dry, I rubbed off the rubber cement and attached two little birds with clear foam tapes on the deer. I also stamped the music notes (from Winter Sparrows set) on the background. I mounted the square on a piece of gold glitter cardstock. Finish it by put the black enamel accents on the eye of the deer. Below is a closer look of the finished square:

Here is another angle of the finished card:

Inside the card, I stamped "happy holidays" (from the Winter Penguin set) and gold embossed it. I also stamped the black music notes to match the card front. Below is the look:
