A herd of reindeer...

I have a set of simple Christmas cards to share today featuring a reindeer die cut (a Die-sires die from Crafter's Companion) and a Hero Arts sentiment (from the 'Very Merry Christmas' set). Despite making Christmas cards all year, I found myself a little short on cards, so set up a little production line to make a batch of quick cards.


I inked the antlers of all the reindeer with 'Picket Fence', and then around his body using 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Inks, before adding a little red pearl for his red nose, and mounting the reindeer on to the cards using 3D foam pads.


Challenges for these cards:
