Happy Reindeer


It's Rudolph Day today, as it is on the 25th of every month, and with February being such a short month we only have 4  days in which to play along at Scrappy Mo's Rudolph Day Challenge,  so I hope you're all feeling suitably festive!

I've used the Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas stamps and die for my reindeer and sentiment, and dressed them up in festive brads from a very VERY VERY old Hot Off The Press Christmas kit. The background is a piece of corrugated card I rescued from some product packaging - as people know I'm a foodie, they often give me Christmas gifts of items like flavoured oils and chutneys, which tend to come in rustic looking packaging, which of course I always rescue and add to my stash.  The snowflakes are the last few from a bargain sheet I picked up at Lidl a year or two back.

Thanks to the recycled corrugated card, I am also sharing this at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Recycling 



And at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge where  I've gone for the Anything Goes option (although that hat brad does have a tiny bit of gold on it!)

  3. Hi Jane,
    what a super looking card and such a brilliant design.
    I love the Reindeer heads and what you have done to them.
    Such a lovely background the corrugated cardboard is.
    I though is was paper till I read your write up.
    Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.

  13. Your like me! I am always saving pieces of covers, plastic, paper or tin from food lol. I can look at something and say "I could use that!". Great card and a great way for you to dig out items from in the past you did not think you would ever use. Thanks for playing at 52cct
