Christmas Reindeer Card

With only 24 days left until Christmas, I'm planning on posting one Christmas project each day. So, keep coming back to see what is new.

This card has very little stamping on it. The Merry Christmas was stamped with the Four the Holidays stamp set (#116921 $13.95) in VersaMark ink and embossed using silver embossing powder. The decorative paper along the left side is Christmas Cocoa Specialty (#116770 $11.95). This pattern is one of 2 that are one-sided but flocked to give some texture.

The reindeer image is made using punches. The head is made using the large oval punch, the eyes using the 1/8" circle punch (both the white and the black), the nose uses the 1/2" circle punch, the ears are from the 5-Petal Flower punch, and the antlers are from the Jumbo Snowflake punch. All pieces are glued together and then the reindeer is attached using Stampin' Dimensionals over a length of Whisper White Taffeta ribbon that is tied around the card front. A very simple card. I hope you enjoy it.
