Christmas Kickstart #6 - Moves on Hooves

Hello friends.  The challenge for the current Christmas Kickstart Challenge is to use a "hooved" animal on your card.


I couldn't resist using one of the reindeer from Stampingbella's ODDBALL REINDEER SET and came up with this fun and whimsical card:


How can you not LOVE that face?!!  His expression just cracks me up!!  And you gotta love the mittens on his antlers, right?!  I colored him with my Copics, and then fussy cut him out and added him to a background of snowy pine trees (Deep Red Winter Pines) that I stamped (and stamped off) in Garden Green ink.  I matted with a layer of Real Red cs and then adhered to a white card base.  I finished with the sentiment in Real Red ink and a piece of black & white bakers twine that I also wrapped around one of the deer's antlers...seemed appropriate...bahahaha!!

Check out all the great cards from the DT and then play along HERE to get a head start on this years Christmas cards!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  5. That expression is priceless! I love that you added more reason for his attitude by tangling the twine around the antler! Kinda reminds me of his tangled looking scarf! This is just so fun, Marcia, and the trees behind him are fantastic!
