Oh, Deer, Christmas Already? Punny Christmas Card

This Winter Reindeer digi from Dead Sea Toons looks like he's been caught in the Christmas headlights. I can sympathize. I hate to sound bah-humbugish, but the older I get, the less important Christmas becomes. The excess of it just seems a bit, well...much. Still, it's a good excuse to make a card, heh? And if you like unusual Christmas digis (hand raised) Dead Sea Toons has some good ones! Rachel, the artist behind Dead Sea Toons was April 2021's Digi Stamp Diva, give the link a click there to find out more about her and her work.

Paper is from Mode & Travaux magazine's 2021 Noël paper crafting issue. I look for these every November now. They have such pretty paper (e.g. the paper on these Ewe Anniversary and Penguin Happy Holiday cards). The sentiment was created with Candy Round BTN font. 

The bow die-cut I used to dress it up is a favorite no-brand one (the Amazon/eBay type). There are three sizes in the die set (this one is the biggest). If you're on a crafty budget like me, these no-brand dies are a nice alternative to big brand ones (I paid around €4.00 for this one).
