I was in the mood for a “quick & easy” Christmas card today. The Detailed Deer dies create beautiful cards, without needing much in additional elements.

Copper Foil Deer


This deer was cut from Copper Foil, and then rolled through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured embossing folder. To coordinate with his Copper fur, I found a piece of Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper in Merry Merlot with copper highlights. I cut a 2″ strip of the DSP, and used the Banner Triple Punch on the bottom. For the top, I used a die from the Botanical Tags die set.



I wanted to use a tag on today’s “quick & easy” card,  because of the challenge at Global Design Project.


The Joyous Noel DSP has some Gray Granite also, so this is the color I chose for layering on the Merry Merlot card base. For some extra dimension, I embossed the Gray Granite layer with the Simple Stripes embossing folder.


The sentiment, “Tis the Season,” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, is stamped between the lines in Merry Merlot ink. To complete the design, I added three Copper Foil doodads from the Detailed Deer die set.


A Detailed Deer could combine with all of the Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper to make a stack of “Quick & Easy” Christmas cards. I’ll be making more of these!
