If you love creating joy during the Holidays, the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the Stampin' Up! July-December 2021 Mini Catalog, is just what you need.  Pair the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set and the Deer Builder Punch with the Free Sale-A-Bration Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper, and you're on your way to creating customized card designs that you are truly happy with. And, a handmade card is more meaningful to the recipient plus just as attractive as store bought cards. Its not always easy to find that card that you know a loved one will relate to,  so taking the time to create something special will give you both joy during the Christmas season.  Punched images and die cuts, such as the Deer or the Encircled in Beauty Dies used to create the layer for the stamped sentiment will add even more distinction to your cards.   And don't forget, until 30 September, for each $50 or $100 order you place (less tax and shipping), you'll earn FREE Sale-A-Bration selections.

Handmade Christmas Card with Deer using the Peaceful Deer Stamp set

The basecard for this card is Garden Green Cardstock.  Then a layer split between two prints from the Peaceful Prints 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Then the sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink on a Basic White die cut using one of the dies from Encircled in Beauty Dies.  The sentiments are from the Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set, however, the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set includes a nice selection of sentiments, as well.

Deer-themed handmade Christmas card featuring Stampin' Up! Peaceful Deer Bundle

I selected two deer from one of the prints in the Peaceful Prints 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper pack, and punched them out using the Deer Builder Punch.  I popped them up on Dimensionals before adding them to my card front.  To add a little bling to my card, I added a Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon, and a Cherry Cobbler Rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
