Santa's Little Helper

And here's another post from me today!  I really need to get moving on making some Christmas cards.  We're nearly halfway through the year and I have a total of two - including the one you're about to see :)


I made this card for the current Merry Monday challenge to create a Christmas card for a child and I used the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch (sort of).  I'm also entering this into CAS Mix Up's current challenge of stamping, die cuts and one other, which in my case is fussy cutting and acetate.

I stamped and colored this adorable little reindeer from Verve then I fussy cut him out.  I then used the Pierced Rectangle Frame die to create a shaker card.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment directly onto the acetate using Stazon ink.  I was going to use a banner as per the sketch, but I didn't want to cover up the sequins.




Thanks for visiting.






Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at Merry Monday.

Your card is completely gorgeous Karren. A child (and adults) would just love the shaker window. The reindeer is so vibrant and cute.
