Welcome to week 6 of our Art With Heart, Heart of Christmas blog hop.

I must admit that I have a bit of a soft spot for reindeer, even though I live in the southern hemisphere, so I was very excited to see this new bundle in the Holiday Catalogue: the Dashing Deer bundle.

I have so many ideas for cards using this bundle, but this week I thought I’d make a quick and simple card CASEd from a lovely design Claire Daly made last Christmas, using another Stampin Up deer thinlit.

Here’s Claire’s stunning card…this really has to be one of my favourite Christmas card designs of all time so I just couldn’t resist CASEing it for this week’s project. I hope you don’t mind, Claire!

I’ve adapted Claire’s design to suit the new Dashing Deer bundle as well as the gorgeous new Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape. Here’s a closer look at that stunning washi tape and the very elegant Dashing Deer thinlit that I’ve used on today’s card.

The Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape features the following colours: Cherry Cobbler, copper foil, Garden Green, gold foil, Real Red and silver foil, so you could so make many different variations of this card by simply using different coloured paper for the reindeer, background cardstock and the ribbon.

For today’s card, I decided to keep it quite traditional, cutting my deer out of sparkle glimmer paper, before adding a red rhinestone to his nose and tying a bow of real red ribbon around his neck.

The washi tape makes this card super quick and easy, but you could also adapt this design to use up strips of DSP instead. I really love this new Suite Season Specialty Washi Tape, especially the Garden Green tape with the white sprigs and the Whisper White tape with the little gold stars.

My final touch was the “Happiest Christmas Wishes” sentiment from the Dashing Deer stamp set, stamped in Real Red. 

Thank you so much for the inspiration, Claire!
