Oh Deer, Christmas is Near!

I know, my title is a silly play on words. While in Ottawa a week ago, I purchased the prettiest Christmas papers from the BoBunny – Sleigh Ride series. I love the wood paneling paper and thought it would make a wonderful “male” Christmas Card. I had envisioned it with a deer or reindeer as the focal point.

In the end, I opted to use my Cricut machine to cut out a series of deer/reindeer silhouettes. Each year, I make 135 plus Christmas card for the Belmont Long Term Care Home, and I like to make sure that each card is unique. I have designed 8 cards in my deer series. For the deer cuts, I used  the Teresa Collins – Holiday cartridge -  Deer M332B3, Deer M33F87, and Reindeer M41413. The sentiments are from Lily of the Valley and Simon Says Stamps. I also used some snowflake stickers I picked up last year at the Dollar Tree. I chose two ways to mount the images, either flush mount or as a shadow drop using foam tape. The white/kraft wood embossed papers are from SSS. I am showing all 8 cards to show how I was able to use both the positive and negative deer silhouettes, and change up the cards with small modifications.

My first card was specifically designed for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Sketch Challenge (52CCT39-16)

UPDATE: I am very excited to have won the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge with the card above.
