Stop over there for more info on their current challenge
Their theme is animals and this is such a fun theme. After digging around and looking at the animals in my stash I decided to use a pretty reindeer outline stamp.
I stamped the reindeer on brown card stock and as I looked at it, I decided to do some paper piecing. I stamped the scarf area on red CS and the antlers were stamped on a light tan CS. I fussy cut the deer. Next I fussy cut the antlers and the scarf and placed them in the area where they are on the original stamped image. Added a red colored half pearl for his red nose.
I had a vision that the deer would be next to some pine trees. So I die cut two pine trees using CS and DP. I also mounted the deer on layered ovals and as I was laying this out on the card the background just looked so naked. I decided to add a stamped forest scene on that background. After adding that and as I layered the die cuts and the mounted reindeer over that background, it just came together.
This will make a perfect man card, or a Christmas or winter card.
Hope this has inspired you.
