MCT Made In Minutes: Oh Deer Birthday Card

by Veronica

I honestly can't remember a time I've made a project "in minutes". Like, ever. One card will usually take me an hour or more to dream up, create, edit, re-do, hem-and-haw over, and then complete. And don't even get me started on scrapbook layouts. Let's just say that twice a year I go away to "Scrap Camp" for a weekend and come home boasting to The Hubs about how I completed "x" number of projects (which I can usually count on one hand).

But I suppose this card could be done in minutes if I were to re-create it. So that counts, right?

MCT Products Used
Oh Deer ("oh deer" & deer dies)
Seasonal Greetings (tree stamps and dies)
Stitched Decorative Banner Die (shape for sentiment)
Celebrate Good Times ("it's your Birthday!")
Birthday Buddies (birthday hat)
Fun Stitched Edges Die (to make hills)

I used a black marker and white gel pen to color some accents on the deer so he looked less like Donner and more like Daniel (this card is for my brother, Dan, after all). I cut his antlers out a second time in kraft to layer them. A little bit of Crystal Effects dots the hills for some added interest.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can see what the other designers have created for today's Made In Minutes on the MCT blog.

I hope you were inspired!

  5. Fun card. I am sure your brother will love it. I love the hills and trees and the polka dot sky

  6. Super cute card! I love the accents you put on the deer!! Hugs!!

  7. I like the white pen to make your deer different. So cute with the party hat. Great job on your birthday card...your brother will love it. I also make nothing in like 20 minutes...ever yet...I keep hoping. I think I follow a similar thought process as you do! Even though I am slow I enjoy doing it and that's what counts. I admire those that not only have one project but many and they are all great. I will have to be happy with one idea and card for now.
