I saw this reindeer on some packaging and thought I could recreate it with Stampin' Up! punches! I think it turned out CUTE! Also appropriate for Christmas Eve…leading the way for Santa's arrival tonight!
I hope you are ready…Christmas is almost here! I think I finally have things under control. Did I get everything done? No…not quite. But…what didn't get done, won't be missed, I'm sure. I have lots of cooking and baking over the next few days with my son and his wife in town and the rest of our family over for Christmas dinner!
The base of the card is a 6×6 Cherry Cobbler piece of cardstock, folded in half to make a 3×6 card. I added a couple strips of Jolly Holiday Designer Paper. Then I stamped Happy Holidays from Holiday Happiness in Early Espresso in the bottom corner.
For the reindeer, I punched the body with the 2 1/2 Circle from Crumb Cake cardstock. The head is a 1 3/8 circle and I trimmed off each side to make it rectangular. I sponged around the edges of both with Early Espresso Classic Ink. The eyes are Black Mini Brads. The red nose is a Red Glimmer Brad! I used the small heart from the Heart to Heart punch for the ears out of Early Espresso cardstock. The antlers are made from the Snowflake Punch, just cut off two of them. I hand drew the spots and muzzle. The legs are just trimmed pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock and the hooves are Early Espresso punched with the 1/2 circle and cut in half. Finally, I popped up the head off the body with Stampin' Dimensionals and I tied a small bow from the 1/8 Real Red Taffeta Ribbon for his neck!
To you and yours, I wish a VERY Merry Christmas! I will have a post tomorrow for the sketch challenge on Stamping 411 and sporadically over the next week! Stop back to see!
