2012 Christmas Cards

Hi Crafters! This was my Christmas card. I ordered this stamp set & die combo from Hero Arts and Sizzix early so I would have it in plenty of time to make cards with. I love these reindeer in sweaters, they are such a hoot. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s, In The Meadow stamp set and I just felt like it was perfect conversation for deer in sweaters, talking about building a snowman. Ha! Ha! I stamped the sweaters in several different colors on colored card stock, then die cut them and trimmed them with scissors to remove the lines for the deer legs and body. I also used the trees and small snowflake, simply stamped without using the matching dies. I did 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation stamping with the small snowflake stamp on the front and on the inside of the card. I’m a heavy stamper and you can see my boo boo, the halo from the extra rubber, so this stamp go a little hair cut! LOL

Different colored sweaters. The tree on the left is stamped in SU’s Old Olive first inked impression, then I huffed on the stamp and did a 2nd generation stamp to the far right and shifted the tree a little lower on the card base. I think this gave a lovely paler tree. I’m very pleased! The center tree was stamped in SU’s Going Green.

The snowman is from the same Papertrey Ink set, In The Meadow. The hill is stamped from a set called stitches ??, and it was curved on the block to mimic a hill.
