I have a Christmas card to share today, featuring a coupld of Penny Black pups dressed up as reindeer. The one on the left is from the 'Wintertime Cheer' set and the one on the right is an old woodblock stamp called 'Reindeer Pup'. I stamped them on to some watercolour paper, coloured them using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut them out. I made a simple background using a snippet of snowy sky paper (from the 'Christmas' pad by Craft Sensations') and snippets of white card...torn along the top edge to look like snow drifts. I cut a star from silver mirror card using one of the dies from the 'Snowy Star' set by Tim Holtz/Sizzix, added a sentiment from the 'Wintertime Messages' set by Hero Arts, then popped the 'reindogs' on using some 3D foam pads.

Challenges for this card:
