Papertrey Ink Holiday Folk Christmas Card

Hello everyone and welcome to the March Christmas Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I went with the optional twist: reindeer, this time, but you don't have to - any Christmas card will do.

1) Dir cut a piece of white card with a Sue Wilson Pierced Square die, mask off  a circle in the centre of the square and then brush on some red ink using Clarity Stencil Brushes.

2) Stamp and die cut 4 boughs from the Papertrey Ink Make it Market: Holiday Folk stamp set, and arrange them around the circle, raising them on some foam.

3) Stamp and die cut 3 reindeer from the same stamp set using kraft ink, and arrange them so they are leaping in the top half of the circle.

4) Stamp the greeting from Papertrey Ink Think Big Favorites #20 in red ink.

5) Layer the square onto some red card and adhere to the base card.

6) Finish off by scattering some tiny red stars and berries over the boughs and going around the edge of them with some glue and then glitter. I couldn't get a good picture of the glittery shine but it looks nice in real life!

As usual, we have some great inspiration for you over on the Happy Little Stampers blog.

I'd like to play along with

Sparkle's Christmas Challenge #86 - twinkle twinkle little stars - my stars are very little twinkling around the wreath!

The Merry Christmas Challenge #9 - anything goes

  4. Hi Carol, what a lovely Christmas card. Combining those boughs to make a wreath large enough for those leaping reindeer was such a clever idea. Love the white and red layers and the way you've pulled more of that red onto the top white layer. You've kept to the traditional Christmas colours and rocked it! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week

  5. I love it. Very lovely wreath for framing the flying deer!

  6. Those boughs formed a perfect wreath around your flying reindeer, Carol. I love the soft inking around the circle.

  7. A very elegant Christmas card. I really like your wreath, which surrounds these beautiful reindeers.

  13. How darling are those reindeer! I love the pink ink blending with the red and green details. Beautiful card, Carol!

  14. I love the way you created the wreath and the size of it allows those flying reindeer to be inside of it and stamd ot so beautifully against the white space. The inking outside of the circle looks great too. Wonderful card.
