This card brings back a funny memory when I was making the gifts for this card we were currently having a power outage, in December at night. I made the bows with quilling paper by candlelight. My darling husband thought I was nuts. Lol. πŸ˜‚

Rudy the Reindeer from Karen Burniston is the star of this card, but I really wanted each reindeer to look a little different. So Rudolf on the front and the two on the inside right were cut in the proper form, the two on the inside left were cut and assembled in reverse. (Note-if you use double-sided adhesive you will need to cut the pieces putting the dies under the cardstock facing up as opposed to on top of the cardstock facing down, this will have the die cut pieces in reverse but still having the double-sided adhesive on the back, make sure the adhesive is on the bottom side of the cardstock). The reindeer on the bottom right had her antlers trimmed to make her look more like a female deer, and the pieces I trimmed off I used to add to the reindeer on the bottom-left to give him a more impressive rack. The wreath around the back left reindeer came with the Rudy the Reindeer die set, and I trimmed pieces off a second wreath to make the holly berries that are on the back right reindeer and also on the Christmas Wishes tag on the front. The red bows are from Karen’s props#1 die set.

I used a Pop N Cuts die to cut out the card base and it also created the pop-up feature on the inside. This die was designed by Karen Burniston and was exclusive to Stampin Up.

The cardstock and designer paper is all from Stampin’ Up. The. colours used in this card are Garden Green, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White. Real Red ink was used to stamp the greeting on the white tag on the front, and to also sponge the edges. The Stamp used is from Stampin as is the die used to cut out the tag. The gift paper is all SU designer paper. I used red Dazzling Details to add red glitter to Rudolf’s. nose, the holly berries, and the 2 bows. I ripped a piece of white cardstock and sponged the edges with Bashful Blue to give it the appearance of a snowbank, this is the space to write a message and sign the card.

The bows and the red and green borders are quilling paper.
