Christmas Reindeer


 I'm still wearing my Santa hat and creating Christmas cards in June, so here is another one. This image is by SU!, and I used to have the stamp set, but gave it away and don't know the name of it. I had a couple stamped images left and colored this one with traditional red & green colors, adding some sparkle to the center reindeer's big nose with Xmas Stickles. I used some snippets of red, green and black to put this together, adding a sentiment of "JOY" done with my Quickutz. The MFT die-dut fishtail banners were done with a SU! retired "Plaid" stamp on red and heat-embossed with white ep, then matted with black. The plaid background paper is from an American Crafts Christmas paper pad.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

June Rudolph Days Challenge - make a Christmas card

HSL June Christmas Challenge - a/g Christmas with an option of "Joy"


Craftyhazelnut's CHNC #391- a/g Christmas with an option of washi tape

That will do it for this Wednesday, but thanks as always for stopping by and do have yourself a fine day!

LOVE this card Carol!!! First off, those reindeer crack me up, they are so cute! Looks like that cats that swallowed the canaries. lol Love you colored them traditionally too. But it is that tartan plaid that you have used that I am in love with. And that banner you stamped and embossed too, looks great! Such a great Christmas card to add to the stash! Hugs, Brenda

What a cast of funky expressions on these dudes! This is such a cute image, and I really like the bold buffalo red plaid as the background. It looks so good with the black accents and the red & white plaid on the fishtail banner. Nifty layout and those guys just made me smile with "Joy". TFS

This card is so darn cute. How could you give that cute stamp away, girl!

I like the way you managed to make each reindeer looks slightly different than the others, and like the look of that great tartan background paper.

Thanks for taking part in the June Rudolph Days Challenge.

I'm always so jealous of your pretty Christmas cards Carol! For one is because they're so great and the other reason so is because your so prepared and smart!!
