Michelle (sf9erfan) and I tackled the sketch on Taylored Expressions Blog today while she was at my house. It's too late to get it in the weekly look-see, but I loved this card and wanted to post it anyway.

The reindeer are from a retired Stampin' Up! set called Holiday Sampler. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Take a Bough, and the little bow making my reindeer girls are from Verve Visual's Black Tie Birdie. I realized after I made this card that I'm not sure if female reindeer have antlers or not. No matter, these ones do!

To make the ties, I stuck a small piece of 3/8" chocolate satin ribbon to the back of each of the paper strips, then positioned each strip on the card front and wrapped the ribbon to the back of the chocolate chip paper and taped it down. I then tied tiny bows around each piece using gold cord. I added gold brads to the right side of each strip.

  • Paper~~SU Ski Slope DP, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive
  • Ink~~Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa (Reindeer), Adirondack Espresso (Bows & Sentiment), Riding Hood Red, Old Olive (Watercoloring)
  • Accessories~~Embellishments from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts
Happy Stamping!
