For A Glad Christmastide-Make It Monday At The Kraft Journal

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was wonderful! We're putting the finishing touches on our Christmas preparation here at our house. It's the last week before school lets out for the holidays and we have quite a round of concerts and parties to attend this week!
It's also time for a new challenge at The Kraft Journal blog. This week's challenge is 'something new'. It's open to your interpretation. I decided to use a new paper pad I purchased last week.
I am fascinated lately with deer and how to use them on cards! I found this sweet cut file at The Silhouette online store. I really loved the sentiment on this patterned paper from American Crafts,so I arranged my card around it. I kept this card pretty clean and simple,the most time consuming item here is the stitching.  I know I usually embellish the center of all my bows,but I kept this one clean and simple. This is a great card to replicate quickly in case you need to whip one up at the last minute. You could also forgo the sewing and get it done even more quickly.

Supplies used from The Kraft Outlet store-
Brown Kraft Notecard
Red And White Baker's Twine
Dark Jewel Hemp Cord Pack

Other Supplies-
patterned papers- American Crafts Wonderland 6x6 pad
brown card stock-Bazzill
wooden snowflake-Prima
