We're Back at Merry Monday

 Good Merry Monday morning.

I've enjoyed our summer break but I'm happy to be back to making Christmas Cards.

Do you realize that Christmas is less than 4 months away?

Yikes!


Deanne has chosen our challenge this week.


This was such a quick and easy card to make!
The Prancing Deer is a Bigz die that does most of the work.

I just dry embossed the rest of the piece and added some gold highlights.

We have 2 guest designers this week, Loll and Kim S.
And we're welcoming a new member to our Design Team.
Welcome, Marcia!

Do go over to Merry Monday and check out their cards.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

The black silhouette of the reindeer is all that is needed for this oh so lovely CAS card. Love the added gold ribbon found his neck. Hugs Mrs A.

Bonnie, this is terrific and fun! When you said fast and easy, I've never made a shaker card that I'd call fast and easy (grin). I've struggled with these and admire yours! Love the crazy bird on this and the wonderful balloons!

Love the striking black reindeer. It makes for a high impact card! Would also be a good design for a masculine card. And I really love the subtle bits of gold you brought in to make it more festive!

Nancy Stislow said...

Bonnie, this is so crisp and clean and I just love the classic black and white! What a perfect embossing folder you used with this die! Love your card1

Notes by Nina said...

Wonderful CAS style card Bonnie, I love the deer against the textured background.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Great card! This black, white, and gold I'm finding is a puzzler for me, but I'm enjoying seeing where people's brains take them. I dragged out all the Christmas stamps over the weekend to do a clean out. I didn't get motivated to play with them though. I definitely need to get back into the swing of it.

Anke said...

Wonderful christmas card, Bonnie. I love the deer and the CAS style.

Hugs
