52 Christmas Card Throwdown

Hello everyone, yes, it's that time of year again when we're all thinking about Christmas, and all those cards we need to get finished to send out before the big day. I, myself, have been pretty busy. I have recently discovered a great site that I've found for lots of Christmas card insperation, 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Each week they have great challenges, and this month they are also having a design team call. This week is a sketch challenge.



Here is the card I created using this week's sketch.


I made my card using one of my newest favorite stamp sets, Mama Elephant's Reindeer Games. I just love this stamp set, the little reindeer are so cute, with all their adorable poses. I know I'll be using this one a lot. The designer paper is from the DCWV Winter Matstack, and the die cuts are from Spellbinders. Although you can't see it very well in the photo, I dotted the die cut snowflake, and the snowflakes on the background paper with Crystal Stickles, which I think adds a nice little touch of bling to the card.
