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

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.

MaryH said...

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

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!
