Jingle all the way

Hi friends! It’s November 1st already… have you started your Christmas card stash yet?! Christmas will be here before we know it, lol! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #47- Anything Christmas Goes. This CAS mini slimline features the STAMPlorations Christmas Reindeer stamps and dies, some of the cutest in my stash!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slim card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers Dies which I adhered together and then to the card base. Using the super adorable STAMPlorations Christmas Reindeer stamp set, I stamped two reindeer on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. I cut them with the coordinating CUTplorations Christmas Reindeer die set and adhered the larger one to the card front. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink. You can’t see them in the photo, but I stamped snowflakes (from the same stamp set) in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink on the background and embellished them with tiny iridescent gemstones.

I cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock. I stamped the inside sentiment in red ink and adhered the other reindeer toward the bottom. I adhered the panels together and then to the inside of the card base.

And one more look… I do believe this is right up there on my list of all-time CAS Christmas favs and it’s so simple! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Such a cute reindeer! Loving how you added the reindeer to the inside of the card too, such a special touch. I’ve been very organised and have already made all my Christmas cards for this year – yay 😊. Happy wishes! Hugs Jo x
