Next time I'm coming back as a Manx Cat as I seem to be forever chasing my tail in this life!!
It's time once again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our next cards that we have made. Lorraine set the theme and chose Reindeer. I have been away visiting family and didn't get back till late Sunday so I quickly made these two yesterday.
As usual I raided my used chirstmas card box for a suitable card front to use and found this rather cute Reindeer. (At first I thought it was a dog wearing antlers but on second looking it does have hoofs so that's ok!). There was not much I could enhance the image with so I decided to make a shaker card instead. (Got to get the acetate on there somehow). I followed Jennifer McGuire's excellent tutorial on her blog here for the shaker element. It really is an easy way of making the frame up. I used a stack of Crafts-Too rectangle dies stitch hole. I filled with an assortment of white/cream sequins. Where I had trimmed the original card down I had a small piece over so I used it for displaying the sentiment which is a Britannia Word Die Cut. I made the card base from red card stock cut down to size.

For my second card using up from my stock of christmas stamps/die cuts/stencils/embossing folders etc. I had recently bought this adorable Leane Creatief Deer & Trees die cut which had been love at first sight. I had to have it!. Here I have used kraft card to make the base card and to cut out the pieces. Design paper is from a pack by First Edition 'Jingle All The Way' that I had picked up from the NEC for £1. Well it would have been so rude not to!!!! I thought it went perfectly with the kraft card. I edged with some cream card stock. Sentiment is again a Britannia Word Die. I didn't have a small enough googly eye in my stash so I used a small spot die punch and added the black with a marker pen.
