I'm playing along with Merry Monday Christmas Challenge again this week. Deanne's challenge is to be inspired by this photo.
Although I wanted to eat those luscious sugar cookies (!) my card design was inspired by that little reindeer with the wreath around his neck - pulling Santa's sleigh in the top right corner of the photo!
I made the little wreath by die cutting a 1" Pinked Circle Nestability and then punching out the center with a 5/8" circle punch. I cut a slit in the wreath and wrapped it around his neck, taping it on the back. I added 3 red rhinestones to the wreath and a black Tiny Twinkles for his eye.
I then made 5 more cards, choosing some different patterned papers and stamping the sentiment on Sentiment Strips.
The red DP on this one was inspired by the cloth on the tray in the photo.
The next I used a black DP. The Prancing Deer is a Tim Holtz/Ranger die. The sentiments are popped up on foam dots.
and a grey swirl DP
And here's the group of 6!
