Easy Handmade Holiday Card Using Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. It is September so you might be feeling a crisp breeze in the air. Or, perhaps you may live along the Florida coast and are feeling a strong, balmy breeze accompanied by driving rain from Hurricane Dorian! - and if so, I hope you and your family and friends are safe and sound. 

The first Wednesday of the month for September, October and November, I will be featuring a holiday card to help inspire you to get started on your holiday cards. If you are like me, I have a very LONG holiday card list so I need to start early with multiple designs to keep from burn out. I also need quick and simple to get the job done.

My card today features the Dashing Deer Stamp Set and coordinating Detailed Deer Dies introduced in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. It is a current stamp set found in the Annual Catalog (p. 71, the die is on p. 192).
Easy Handmade Holiday Card Using Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer Stamp Set
This is a fairly basic design concept with one layer of DSP for the background (cut 4" x 5 1/4" and cut in half, or maybe another dimension, say 2 1/2 and 2 3/4) to use the reverse side as an accent piece. I did hide the seam with a 1" wide strip of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock, topped with a piece of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon. [Edited: Oops, this picture shows the retired Striped Burlap Trim; I had a spool of this ribbon in my holiday box and forgot this ribbon did not carry over. The Burlap Ribbon looks just fine here as well.] Then embellish with one of the cutest deer, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut using the dies. You will notice that the DSP is the Dashing Along DSP from last year -- it is currently on the Clearance Rack for $4.40. (Do I need to say, Hurry!)
