Christmas at Sweet Stampin' in July

It's the second Wednesday of the month and time for our new challenge at
Christmas at Sweet Stampin'
where our July theme is
Oh Deer
and we are delighted to be sponsored by the fabulous
Funky Kits

Our theme this month describes my situation perfectly.   I've had to pull out an old card I made but didn't post last year rather than the one I was planning on as my server died.   I don't mean my butler passed away or anything.  I have a computer server where I store EVERYTHING and I couldn't access it last Friday and my 'pooter specialist couldn't access it either.  He has taken it away today.  Sadly I last backed up at the beginning of May so unless he can retrieve the data, I will have lost quite a bit including my original card for today's post.   Still, I did have this card which I like to call 

"Nice Rack"

I made it last Christmas for a guy who I thought would appreciate the masculine feel of this spellbinder die combined with what I think might be Craftworks Card's paper and some extra holly.

Do come and play along with the CASSettes this month.  Christmas is closer than you think!

Oh wow, this is some awesome paper. I love that it has the holly in the bottom corner and then you cut out more and put it in the top corner. It's balanced and the papers are awesome. LOVE the cut out of the deer. This is gorgeous! Hugs, Gail

This is a fabulously designed card Lesley. It looks so good how you've added dimension by cutting some of the leaves and then adding the berries. Then I also like the way you made the deer die the focal point... it's a great card!
