Reindeer Games Holiday Card

Hey there!  I know today is hump day, but instead of bringing you a camel project, how about a Reindeer?  I call this card Reindeer Games because my reindeer looks like he is playing in the snow.

I love the side step cards, including this one.  I started with Close To My Heart Juniper Card stock.  Side step cards are easy to cut with your 12 inch paper trimmer, though I confess that I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the base card.  After cutting the basic card, I switched to my Cricut.

I used the new Close To My Heart Artbooking cartridge to cut the remaining elements for my card.  I used a heavy textured card stock to cut the reindeer.  Like yesterday's interlocking circle background, I used left over photo print paper to cut the snowflakes.  The chevron rectangles and the double layer of tags were cut with Close To My Heart's Frosted Paper pack. I love this new wintery DP set.

Like the other card elements, I cut the sentiment tag on the bottom with the Artbooking cartridge.  I used Chocolate ink to stamp the Happy Holidays sentiment onto the card.

I used pop dots to affix the double layer labels and the reindeer to the front of the card.

I love this new Frost paper pack and will be using it for several of my Christmas cards this year, soo do expect to see more of line here in my blog in the near future.
