CTMH, Oh Deer!

I love the Holiday Season and making Christmas Cards.  This year, Close To My Heart has two great looking Holiday paper packs.  Yesterday I spent the morning working with "Oh Deer!"  The designs are just what you would expect and so much more.  Deer, snowflakes and stars are featured.  But, it is the color scheme that is surprising.  Sea glass, the CTMH color of the year is highlighted along with soft shades of brown. 

I wanted to do a fun fold card.  I remembered how I had used to do flap fold cards so I dug through my old papers and found the measurements.

 There is so much in this one little A2 sized card.  There is the glitter paper, rock and roll stamping on the pine cones and random stamping for the pine needles.  The stamp set I used for the "fancy" stamping is called Perfectly Pine (A1191.)

I also wanted to make sure I had a sentiment stamped one the inside of the card.  This sentiment is from the new set called "Season of Magic" (C1665.)

Let me give you the measurements and scoring lines for cutting this card.
     Base - 4 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches
     Flat - 3 1/2 x 6 inches
     Score base on the long side at the 5 1/2inch mark
     Score flat on the long side at the 11/2 inch mark
Attach the 11/2 inch flap to the back of the card on the 5 1/2 inch side and decorate as you wish.

I can't believe that it is November already!  Time to really put the last push on the Holiday cards.  I've been working like crazy at work designing all kinds of floral arrangements (over 600 already) and will post a few soon.  If you like Oh Deer! stop by my website to see it further and to maybe even purchase a packet for yourself.  Also, stop by my friend Karen's Blog to see what she has been doing.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
