Reindeer Games

Last week I didnt make the cutoff to play along with the Jingles Belles blog but I made sure to find some time this week. The challenge this time is to use any type of holiday animal in your design.

I am sure everyone who truly knows me is expecting to see a moose card, and I may still try and get one done, but I actually went with a reindeer this time. I just got a Cricut and one of the cartridges I bought, Winter Woodland, had some reindeer images that I wanted to give a try, so this is what I came up with!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Petite Pairs, Many Merry Messages(inside sentiment, not shown)
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Deck The Halls DSP, Bazzill
Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Cricut 'Winter Woodland' cartridge, Smooch Spritz Silver Foil, small oval punch, dimensionals



  1. Love that cool reindeer die cut ... I have got to figure out how to get my Silhouette to cut ... so many possibilities ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.

  2. well, i'd definitely ♥LOVE♥ to see a "moose card" at some point... but there's no way i'd trade away this amazingly handsome reindeer!!! i love the way he's cut out in the "window" with the bold contrasting color behind him, and how you've finished the card with such simple perfection! fabulous!

  3. Lisa, that is a beautiful reindeer cut!

  4. I love the cricut reindeer. The red popping out from behind adds such a nice layer. Beautiful.

  5. Super cute!! I can make Christmas and winter cards all year!

  6. Lisa - you neeeeed to do a moose card - would so love to see it. I have had many a heated discussion with people over here in Germany about the difference between a moose and an elk (they generally use the same word for both here - Elch) and I have to say that I have become a bit fixated with moose! I got to see a couple when we travelled through the Yukon which was a bit of a highlight for me (European big cities don't generally feature many moose - or elks for that matter!!). But anyway, this card is great - the cricut shape works so well and you have made such a lovely card. hope you are on the mend and feeling better again. Go on, show us the moose!!!
