Rudolph Day - July 2014

It's Rudolph Day...well it was on the 25th.  Thankfully this challenge is open until the 31st.  I've had such a busy month and today while finishing up a post for later in August, it dawned on me that my intentions for July's Rudolph Day was quickly slipping away!  So off to my craft room I ran...and yes, I mean ran!

I knew I would need something quick (a word I try not to use as quick usually means takes a long time and nothing goes as planned.  I thought it might be fun to die cut the Memory Box Deer and then emboss it using an embossing folder.  Well, my deer was removed with no antlers, and he was split mid-section.  Making lemonade from lemons, I die cut another deer and carefully reconstructed my embossed deer.  It went together quickly.  I embossed the base, added a ribbon and stamped and cut the sentiment.

Here's the inside.
The inside is pretty much the same, but a little different.  That's how I usually make the insides.  I have everything out so why not finish the card?

Sarn requires two cards....this next card was really simple.
I rubber stamped on glossy photo paper.  I colored direct to stamp.  I used a stamp positioner so I could over stamp it if I needed to.  The inside will be done on my computer.  I will put a typed panel in, as for this card I plan to type a note to the recipient.

I'm going to enter my cards into:  Rudolph Day Challenge, and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge also  Crafty Hazelnut's Extra Mid-month challenge.  I think my little trees are so cute.  And I've got to say, this card was pretty easy.  I think it will be one I use if I need a card in a hurry. 

Off I go for now.  I wish you all a Happy Rudolph Day and I now am closer to having my cards finished.
