Merry Monday #24!

I was in the process of getting ready for a workshop for this weekend and got side-tracked to create a card! I decided to check out Merry Monday and look what I found:

Isn't that just the cutest sketch for a Christmas card? Did I say Christmas....yes! That is what the challenge is about each week at Merry Monday. By creating one a week, you end up with a stash all ready to go for the holidays!

This is my card for this week:

I was so saddened when Stampin' Up! decided to retire "Dasher", one of my favorite holiday stamps...but look what we got to replace him:

Meet "Christmas Deer"! You don't get to see all of him as he is quite large and I cut just enough to fit in my punched  1 3/4" Circle. He even has little ornaments and things you can hang from his antlers. The scallops are from the "Pennant Die". And the lace embossing is from the "Delicate Designs Embossing Folders". Here are all the supplies I used:
  • Cardstock: Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Marina Mist
  • Inks: Marina Mist Cajun Craze
  • Stamps: Christmas Deer, Merry & Type
  • DSP: Polka Dot Parade
  • Accessories: Rhinestone Jewels
  • Tools: Pennant Die, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Delicate Designs Embossing Folders

  1. Debbie,
    I too, loved Dasher. At first, I wasn't smitten with the news guy but I have to admit, you are changing my mind.
    Great card!

  2. Oh, this is so nicely done....I hesitated about getting this handsome guy because I can just see me losing those little itty bitty ornaments....but it does make for an impressive image! Love the non-traditional colors, too! So glad you could play with the Merry Monday challenge this week! Come back again!

  3. Wonderful card, the focal image is fabulous and the added bling is perfect. Thank you for joining us for Merry Monday.
