Holiday Reindeer

Another card for the current challenge at Jingle Belles - "no time like presents" - to use leftover wrapping paper, tags, etc. to create holiday cards. As you can see here, I used an oval punch to create my focal point from this adorable and vintage style wrapping paper that I adore. I used a recent Freshly Made Sketch once again and again, I can't seem to stop using burlap! 

Since I "cut off" part of a poinsettia in the wrapping paper design, I found one that would effectively overlap the image, covering the partial one on the paper while providing some dimension. Cute, but quick and easy and one more card for the 2015 stash!!!

As I mentioned, this card is for the current prompt at Jingle Belles! Head on over and check out the fabulous inspiration. You know you want to get those holiday cards going and reduce your stress next holiday season!

Thanks for stopping by!

What I used:
oval and scalloped oval punch
Target gift wrap leftovers
Prima poinsettia
paper - CTMH scrap and Little Yellow Bicycle "Making Merry"
Kaiser pearls for the centre of the poinsettia and to embellish
CTMH distressing tool


  1. That little vintage deer is so adorable ... it makes such a perfect focal point ... and the burlap adds such great texture ... so glad you're starting 2015 with us at jingle belles.

  2. Very cute! I love the poinsettia flower with the matching green pearls to the pearls in the corner of the card.

  3. That little deer is so sweet and the poinsettia perfectly placed. Wonderfully done!

  4. oh my gosh! that deer is soooooooooooooooooo FABULOUS, i was going to guess the stripey piece was the giftwrap, i'm now VERY jealous of how cool your xmas gifts must have looked with those sweet deers and poinsettias on them! YOWZA! love, love, love your amazing JINGLE BELLES card!


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
