Happy October everyone! Where has this year gone? Now its truly Autumn its time to crank up the Christmas crafting so I’m starting off today with a fairly simple design which can be easily replicate, meaning you’ll soon have those Christmas cards made.
I’m using the Peaceful Deer stamp set along with the Deer Builder punch, both can also be bought as a bundle. Using the punch you can stamp out two of the stamped images and its also co-ordinated with the Peaceful Prints DSP from Sale-A-Bration which has now ended.
For this project I used a card base measuring 10.5cm x 21cm as I origianally wanted to fit all nine of Santa’s reindeer on the card, this sadly didn’t work so I’ve made two different cards. One with three reindeer and one with four.
For the background I used Misty Moonlight ink and blended it across the centre of the card. I then took the little star cluster stamp and stamped all over the blended ink.
For the deer I stamped them in Gray Granite ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then punched them out. I adhered them on the card with liquid glue.
I stamped Merry Christmas in versamark onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut into a banner using the Banners Pick A Punch. I cut a second red banner from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP.
To finish off my card I added a red rhinestone to one reindeer on each card so each one has their own Rudolf.
I think I prefer the card with just three reindeer, how about you?
