Happy Holidays

 
 Yippee, I got another Christmas card done using Merry Monday's #70 sketch.  I used SU Very Vanilla and Old Olive CS and the DSP is from Authentique's Festive Collection, including the red mats.  Isn't that little Santa's Helper reindeer just the cutest.  He is from Verve stamps. I stamped him in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Promarkers and cut him out.  I added him to an oval cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals die, embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflake die. I lightly sponged some SU Bashful Blue ink over the raised snowflakes.  This is matted on an Olive Green Scalloped Oval diecut and mounted with foam tape.  The sentiment, from the same set, is stamped in Mememto ink, cut out with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics. I put the die cut back in the die and cut the other end also to make both ends look the same and mounted it with foam tape also.  Lastly, I added some SU Cherry Cobler Baker's Twine and that's it for my card.

I am also entering my card in CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra - anything Christmas.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,  I appreciate your comments.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
