It's not even Halloween yet and I have been making so many Christmas cards. This way you will have time to order your supplies and make your cards. Of course, you can ask me to make them for you.

Anyway, Dasher is currently Stampin' Up!'s number one selling stamp. It's available as a single stamp. This reindeer is so versatile - he can be country (like this card) or very elegant. There are tons of great ideas out there. I found this sample here. There are a few things about this card that don't show in the photo. 1) The white layer is popped up on the brown. 2) I used one of the swirly stamps from the Priceless stamp set in versamark ink on the red layer so it wasn't so plain. Sometimes subtle can make big impacts. 3) The big brown button is a fake. I followed the directions here to make it out of cardstock. Some people are just too clever!

Have a great day!
