Peace and Love

I bought the MFT Deer Friends set when it was first released and since then I've been totally stumped as to how to use it!  I've had a few attempts at using it but always dumped the results. So I was thinking of getting rid of the set.

I often have Youtube on in the background while I craft and I noticed that the designers demoing MFT 's releases tend to use a lot of dies with the stamps. I have a Silhouette so I very rarely buy dies but I decided to look through my cutting files and see if anything sparked.

This set - a frame, a banner and a flower (which I didn't use) were, I think, a free set from Silhouette. I stamped the deer and sentiment (Hero Arts)  in dark brown ink . I cut the frame out of glitter card and made a background using Distress Oxide ink and pearl water,  Then I added snowfall acetate behind the frame.
