Ok…so I’ve dabbled in making a few Christmas cards so far but now that all my Thanksgiving cards have been sent, I’m getting serious about it! For today’s card, I pulled out a beautiful set that was introduced in last year’s Holiday Catalog and carried over to this year’s Annual Catalog…Dashing Deer stamp set and the coordinating Detailed Deer dies. With all the new sets introduced in the current Holiday Catalog, it’s easy to forget that the Annual Catalog has some really pretty older and new sets also.
I stamped the deer image in Delicata Golden Glitz ink. After die cutting the stamped image, I die cut two more deer from Very Vanilla thick card stock and layered them for a pretty dimensional look.
I gave this old favorite set a fresh spin with some new Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper and embellishments, along with a new sentiment. The sentiment is from the host set, Greatest Part of Christmas. I’m happy to add this set to my collection as it’s all holiday sentiments in various fonts. I know this is one I’ll be using for many Christmas holidays to come.
I used another sentiment from the Greatest Part of Christmas stamp set for the inside and embellished it with a pretty border stamp from Dashing Deer.
I’m happy when I can give new life to a set that isn’t necessarily the latest and greatest. I’ll definitely be doing more of this in the future.
Thanks for checking in today and I hope your holiday week is off to a good start.
