Christmas Card: Variation on a Theme

I have created various scenes within stencil apertures for my Christmas cards this year.  This card is a variation on this theme, as it uses one of the Clarity Outline stamps and masks and the teeny weenie stamps which come with them to create the aperture and scene. 
I cut my Clarity stencil card to 13.5cm x 13.5cm as I was intending to use a 6" x 6" card blank this time.  The Holly Leaf Outline stamp was added in Library Green Archival ink.
I masked off the outside of the leaf with the mask which comes with the stamp set, then added the Hills & Mountain mask by Claritystamp.  One of the Spots masks was put in place to act as the moon and Midnight Blue Artistry ink brushed over the sky.
With the masks still in place,  the teeny weeny fir tree which comes with the same stamp set was added multiple times in Smokey Grey Versafine ink, the cabin was added in Onyx Black.  Once the hill mask was removed,  the deer was added in Onyx black too and copy paper and a spot on sponge used to add shading in Midnight Blue ink.  The outer mask was then also removed.
Placing the inner mask over the leaf, Midnight Blue Artistry ink was brushed through the mini script stencil (Claritystamp) multiple times.  The mask was then removed.
Merry Christmas from the Clarity Mini Word Chains (13&14) was stamped in Onyx Black ink to finish the topper.
The topper was matted onto a piece of dark green card (14cm x 14cm) and added to the card blank.
