Deer in a Row...or Two

I used the fun new CZ Design Deer in a Row, and cool new sentiments from Simon's Holiday Greetings Mix 1,  from Simon Says Stamp's newest Cheer and Joy release, to make a couple fun Christmas cards...
 I die cut and adhered together a couple layers of the die cut deer with white card stock.  Truth be told, I adhered A LOT of two layers of these guys...I think they are so stinkin cute, I just KNEW I would be making more than one or two cards with them(I still have some layered ones on my desk for more cards!).  I then got the idea, because there were so many deer, and you know how I LOVE rainbows, to make them my favorite colors...a rainbow!!  So, I cut 1/2" strips of striped patterned paper, adhered it together on a piece of paper, and die cut the strip of deer from the strips of color!   I don't think my strips were 100% 1/2"...so I was happy to see that my experiment worked!! I popped up a card panel on the top and bottom of the row, and added a sentiment from the new Simon stamp set, Holiday Greetings Mix 1.  Here's a close up...
The second card, I chose to use some kraft colored card stock for my deer...
 THEN, I thought...what if I used TWO rows of deer??  So I layered and then adhered together  2 rows of deer, positioning them catty corner to each other so you can see them all. And THEN...I thought of the sentiment and the word "magic" in the sentiment gave me the idea to make one of my deer Rudolph!!  SO, I dotted one's nose with a drop of Berry Tonic drops.  I used some pine tree patterned paper behind the deer and popped the panel up on the top and bottom of the deer.  Here's a close up... 
Oh these little guys are so so cute, and so so fun!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  3. I think your rainbow Deer in a Row card is inspired, and the Merry & Bright sentiment is fast becoming my favorite.

  4. Your cards are from another realm. Can't say more than that!
