Merry Christmas



This didn't feel odd at all... Making a Christmas Card in April... Anyway. This was for another challenge blog. This one is actually specialized in Christmas Cards and this week's challenge was to make a Christmas Card including a reindeer. Pretty cool. Since I don't have any reindeer stamps or Merry Christmas Stamps or any real Christmas Paper, I had to work with the things I had. Have already spent this months "Cardmaking budget"... And way above it too... *hrm*
So I found a cool reindeer on the web and draw it by hand since I'm way way to lazy to find the cable for the printer. It has been gone for a while now... Gonna buy a new printer later on... First I made the reindeer pointing to the right and I coloured it. But that didn't really look too good, so I ended up flipping it over and colouring it black. I used a sunset image from my DCWV Safari Chic Stack and some golden paper I found. I also had some winter papers laying around from a Winter Scrapbooking kit I bought at a Swedish department store with everything called Clas Ohlson.
I used my GellyRoll Metallic Gold pen for some stitching that doesn't really show that good on the photo.
It was really fun to make a Christmas Card and I'm gonna look at the blog for next week's challenge. The blog is called Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club.
The text is Swedish and translates, obviously, "Merry Christmas"!
