CAS Christmas Deer- A Ten Minute Card

Hi Stampers!

Time flies so fast and now I am behind on my own commitment to create at least six Christmas cards a month (again, I did not mail any since I was behind last year- definitely want to make sure they are mailed this year in time) :-)

I tend to struggle with Clean and Simple designs but I keep trying so 
 I decided to try a quick, easy card for the CASology #82 Bold Challenge using the CTS64 Sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch! , colors from the NAC76 Nacho AverageChallenge and the Animal Theme from the Merry Monday #95 Christmas CardChallenge- again, each challenge listed has a link and I hope you will take the time to visit their sites!

This is probably the easiest card that I have made this year since I already had the die cut ready to go from an earlier project...less than ten minutes even if you have to cut the die :-)

To create this card:

Use the 2 ½” Circle Punch to create the moon from Blushing Bride cardstock and layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Use Paper Snips or scissors to hand cut a wavy line across a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock- trim to approx. 4” wide and adhere onto the card front overlapping the “moon” a bit. 

With Basic Black Classic Ink, stamp the sentiment from the retired Short & Sweet set and add the Rhinestone accent.

Use the Big Shot™ to cut the deer die from Basic Black cardstock and add to the card front using Mini Glue Dots.

The card is finished- how quick was that??

Stamp Sets: Short & Sweet

Ink: Basic Black

Paper: Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla

Accessories: Big Shot™, Deer Die (non-SU!- Impression Obsession), 2 ½” Circle Punch


Thanks for visiting- have a wonderful Sunday!!
