Oh Deer!

I really love Christmas card making, but I always get surprised at how long my list of cards to make is. Every year I find I need to make a few cards that are very quick to make but that can be changed up with just changing colours. For these cards I used:

For this card design I cut a deer head design out using my Silhouette. But there are lots of dies that will give you a similar shape if you don't have a Silhouette or other digital cutting machine. I layered a red layer on the card blanks, and placed patterned paper on top of this. In the card below I used a hammered white die cut circle and laid a buff coloured deer head over it.

For the exact same card but in a colour flip I used a buff coloured circle and hammered white deer head. Just by changing these two colours you get a different look to the card.

I had some extra circles and another deer head on my craft desk so I decided to see how I could get yet another look still with this card. I used a rectangular card card base for this one and a different patterned paper. It looks totally different from the first two cards, but still is technically the same. It is amazing what a difference changing the shape and patterned paper combo can make!
