PCCCS168 - Happy Wonderful Christmas

I love the easily cut out images that make up the beautiful Home for Christmas Designer Series paper.  I've already cut out one of the Santa Claus images for a card and this time I chose the adorable baby reindeer.  The sketch challenge for the Paper Craft Crew just seemed to be perfect for it.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge 168. #papercraftcrew #cardsketch

To make the image "pop", I kept my colours to a minimum.  I used the heavy weight Whisper White for my base, added a layer of Cucumber Crush and then a layer of the normal weight Whisper White.  Across the lower portion of the card I added a strip of Basic Grey onto which I added some of the pretty Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim ribbon.  Then I stamped the holly branch from the Embellished Ornaments set onto a die-cut circle twice, extending onto the layer of Whisper White.   After colouring the images, I added the fussy-cut image of the young Rudolf, mounted on Dimensionals.   The sentiment from the Wondrous Wreath set completed my card.


For more cards using this sketch, I invite you to visit the Paper Craft Crew challenge.

I've also entered this card in the Weekly Christmas Card challenge.

For another fun challenge, I invite you to check out the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.
