Happy Birthday Deer Dad

Today is my Dad's birthday! He used to enjoy deer hunting, so I thought he'd get a kick out of this card. The punched deer was inspired by Mercedes Weber...she submitted the winning idea of using punches to create fun holiday tags, featuring adorable critters, like this deer! What a fun idea. I LOVE my punches, so as soon as I saw this idea, I knew I'd have to try. Here's what I used to create my deer ~
Head: Wide Oval Punch (Chocolate Chip)
Eyes: 1/2" Circle Punch (Whisper White) & 1/4" Circle Punch (Basic Black)
Nose: 1/2" Circle Punch (Really Rust)
Ears: 5-Petal Flower Punch (Really Rust)
Hair: Boho Blossoms (Really Rust)
Antlers: Wide Oval Punch (Chocolate Chip)
And here's the inside, plenty of room for everyone to write a little greeting to dad (aka grandpa)!While I had those supplies out, I made another card, this time with a Christmas theme! Hey look, it's Rudolf and that shiny red nose is making his eyes cross, lol :) ~
We're using TONS of punches at my workshop tomorrow night. I'll be showing you those projects a little later! You can check out ALL those fun SU punches right
HERE! Well, that's it for today.
Hope you had a great weekend. Stay tuned for more punchy projects! Thanks for stopping by :)
