Squared Reindeer

Hello, and welcome!

Another Wednesday rollin' in, which means it's my turn to produce a Design Team card for Stretch 'n' Bubbles, and this week I had a wonderful time playing with a really cute Christmas digital stamp.......I have to tell ya, this ickle fella is way too cute.......

The image is called Squared Reindeer and you can click on his name to be taken to the store.......


And this is what I cam up with.............

You won't find this one fadin' into the background on your Christmas display of card....ha!  Loud and bold, and proud of it.........

I used some stash from last year (still stickin' to my determination not to buy new stuff...ha!), so the DP is from last year's Papermania collection, and I've had the jingle bells for years....it's a huge jar of 'em, sitting on my shelf......I coloured up the background with my trusty Promarkers, and added some golden Stickles to the pretty flourishes.......and that .....er......ahem.....little nose was just cryin' out for me to dob glittery Mod Podge all over it....haahaaaa!

I printed the sentiment on the 'puter........love that font....think it's called Joker............fits the bill here....ha!

Put a piece of the red ribbon (from stash) across the centre, threaded 3 bells onto thin gold wire (note to self: get more wire....it's so versatile!) and popped a hand-tied bow on top........

Popped everything up onto foam and it's ready to go..........and I really enjoyed makin' this little card....simple, but lots of fun!


Got a few challenges to pop it into:
clearitoutchallenge.blogspot.com Glitter it (use old supplies)
tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com Non-stamped sentiment (mine was off the computer)
thecraftgarden.blogspot.com Bold bright and loud

Hugs,
Anne-Marie x
