Merry Christmas from my Stash
March Christmas Card Challenge over on Split Coast - the challenge was to use' found items' in your stash.
My found items were a print out of this card by Antje that I had printed in 2010 when she posted it on her blog - as well as a box of the red felt reindeer that I had purchased at Border Books several years ago. I now remember I printed a copy of Antje's card because I knew I had the same reindeer and I loved how she had used them on her card!
Fast forward to 2013 and I'm finally making the cards! I made 6 of them since I had 6 red reindeer (I also have pink, green and blue ones but those will be for another day!)
I changed it from Antje's card a bit by stamping all of the snowflakes in red (she used white on the smaller ones) and I made my banner white instead of kraft. I also added a rhinestone to the center of the big snowflake and left off a button she put on the reindeer.
I die cut a scallop square Nestie - then die cut a circle out of the center to make my frame. I stamped all the snow flakes directly on the card - framing the large one in the center. The sentiment is stamped on a die cut banner using Nested lacey Pennants.
The stamps are from two different Waltzingmouse Sets - the snowflakes are from Sewing Box Christmas and the sentiment is from Nordic Winter.
Just a reminder that I have a couple of Waltzingmouse posts coming up - this Thursday all of the WMS DT will be participating in a Blog Waltz using some of our favorite WMS sets.
AND next week on March 5th we will start showing sneak peeks of the 3 wonderful new WMS sets Claire will be releasing on March 8th!!
Hope you will stop by!
