ABC Christmas Challenge - D is for...

It's time for a new ABC Christmas Challenge, and this fortnight Dorte is the host, with a theme of:

'D is for Die Cuts'

Our sponsor for this challenge is QKR Stampede:
Prize - 5 Digital Images!

I used a Hero Arts and Sizzix stamp and die set to create my card. I stamped the reindeer on to kraft card...adding a little colour using watercolour pencils...and gave them coloured jumpers using 'Chipped Saphire' and 'Fired Brick' Distress Inks. I cut the trees from an assortment of green papers from pads by My Mind's Eye, Penny Black, Studio Calico and Crate Paper. For the background, I used paper from the 'Here & There' pad by Studio Calico, and strips of white hammer textured card, torn to look like fluffy snow. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Celebrate Everyday' set by Hero Arts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
