Christmas Card Club - "Christmas Reindeer"

Good morning all.

We had a lovely sunny day yesterday albeit a little windy. Hubby took Lora  off to Deep Sea World so I had a day to myself. Managed to get a couple of little cards made but spent several hours looking at plans for a property we're considering purchasing!

It's time once again for our fortnightly Christmas Card Club challenge and this time the theme was set by Rita who gave us "Christmas Reindeers".

I found the stamp I used when looking for something else...I'd completely forgotten I owned it!!



The stamp is called Snowy and Rudolph and is a Penny Johnson from Stampavie. I stamped it a couple of nights ago on a piece of waste card and left it lying on my desk to await colouring...when I glanced at it again later I decided it looked lovely uncoloured so I just coloured Rudolph's nose with promarkers to add a pop of colour and added glossy accents for some sheen. Sentiment was a magazine freebie. Image is adhered to the black card base with foam tape to give a little dimension.
All finished inside and another flat for posting.

  2. I'm really loving all your CAS cards Carol. They really are terrific. And I think you were absolutely right in the way you coloured - or rather didn't colour - the image. It's just perfect. Hugs Christine x
