Reindeer Christmas Card

Hi!  Just sharing a card (actually I made 4 duplicates) that I made yesterday.  No card challenges.  It was such a fun card to make, that I wanted to show you AND provide a link to Jennifer McGuire's blog, where I learned this technique. I CASE'd her card, actually.  For you non-stampers that means Copy And Share Everything.

Here is Jennifer's card, below.  And HERE is the link to her blog post, which includes a video.

I don't often make "cute" Christmas cards, but her card was just adorable.   So...I created this.

Yeah..I changed very little from Jennifer's card.  My stamped image is from a retired Stampin' Up! set that I still love. It's called Merry & Bright.  I colored this little deer using the technique that I learned in the video and (like Jennifer) covered him with some clear Wink of Stella.  Too cute!

Thanks for taking a look!
