Reindeer Games

I can't believe another week has whizzed by since I last shared anything with you but anyway here I am with a Christmas card, inspired by a few current challenges.


Unusually for me I had a layout in mind and the card was born from that. I have no idea who the papers are by but I do remember buying  them from Buddly Crafts a couple of years ago. The sweet reindeer are from the Reindeer Games set and I fussy cut and attached them with foam pads onto a water splattered Weatherwed Wood DI background. The pretty edges were made using a Marianne Craftables set.

The inspiration came from here

Allsorts Challenge #370 - Gingham style
Double D challenges - Simply Gingham
Crafty Gals #79 - Lots of Layers
ABC Christmas Challenge - N for No Rules

Thank you for sharing your day with me, you are always welcome xx

  1. It's adorable Sarah, those cute reindeer are so sweet and your layout is great. I often struggle with the card design, placing things here, then there and moving them around. It would be so much easier if I had a plan like you did here. A fab job and another Christmas card for your pile.

  27. This just makes me smile! Caught a glimpse when looking at your bold circles, and what a difference in feel on this cute card. Love the soft gingham & combining the same shade in the dots pattern made such a cool border. The tiny reindeer scampering in the circle just look so pleased with themselves...and love the lacy circle's trim. This is just a very happy card! TFS & Hugs

  32. Hi Sarah - oh my, I love this card. Firstly, it is circular and I adore circular cards. Secondly, I really like how you have made the inky background - it look really striking. Thirdly, you have used reindeer which are a particular favourite of mine - finally 'cos i am losing count - you have put everything together beautifully - this is just a perfect Christmas Card. Thank you for joining in the fun at ABC Christmas Challenge too!
