I love quick and easy Christmas cards. The Peaceful Deer bundle by Stampin' Up! creates a fun card featuring a gold deer prancing on the front. I used the Heartwarming Hugs designer series paper for the three panels. I always overthink which patterns to choose and need to remind myself that it doesn't matter that much. I could also just make several cards with different patterns, that way I wouldn't need to choose just one design!
This card could be CASED easily with your favourite Christmas paper. The card design comes together quickly once you know what sizes to cut the paper. Print off my "card recipe" for all measurement and instructions.
