I hope you had a great weekend. I was able to get five days off over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. Woohoo! It was low key for us and I got to “play” in my studio A-LOT! We also got caught up on all our DVR’d shows. Yay!
Today I have for you the third design we created in my November Card Class. I CASE’d this fun reindeer from Dena Rekow. Thank you Dena! She had it on a gift bag. I thought it was too cute so I incorporated it into a card. I had the red pompom trim and thought it would be just perfect for the nose. What do you think?
CARD BASE: The card base is Crumb Cake sponged with Craft Whisper White using the Dots Mask from the Decorative Masks–Dots & Stripes. [TIP: You’ll want to let this dry a bit before putting the cards pieces together. When it’s dry wrap and adhere the 1-1/4″ Cherry Cobbler Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around to front of card. The reindeer will cover where ribbon meets.
FOCAL POINT: Body – Extra-Large Oval punch, 5/8″ is cut from bottom. Hooves–1/2″ Early Espresso Circles glued and then trimmed. Chest–one Whisper White petal from Fancy Flower punch. Tail–is ear portion from Owl Builder Punch. Head: Owl body is Crumb Cake from Owl Builder Punch. Ears–candle flame shape from Cupcake Builder Punch. Nose–5/8″ Whisper White Circle with a Real Red Pom-pom attached with a glue dot. Antlers–are Early Espresso from Tree Builder Punch. The head is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I know, isn’t he just too cute!
SENTIMENT: Whisper White strip stamped with sentiment from Oh, What Fun stamp set in Momento – Tuxedo Black ink. Right end is punched with 1″ Circle and popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I thought is was appropriate for the cuteness of the card.
