Card A Day Blog Post: Christmas Animals

Hi everyone, here is my latest card I created for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is Christmas Animals. I chose this cute little reindeer, titled, Funny Little Reindeer, from Mcmahon Five. This card will be going into the box with the Operation Write Home cards that I will be sending out soon.

To make my card, I started off with a 5.5"x 4.25" white card base. For the background paper, I used the mittens printed paper from the Jolly Holiday paper pack from Recollections, cut to 5.25" x 4", and adhered that to the front of my card base. For the striped paper panel, I cut a piece of the solid purple cardstock from the same paper pack to 3.25" x 2.5", then cut out a piece of the diagonal striped paper at 3" x 2.25", and adhered that on top of the solid purple piece, the attached that to the middle right of the card base. 

For my image, I printed up the reindeer image at about 2.25" x 3" and colored it with Copic Markers, E35, E33, and E53 for the reindeer, G14 for the coller, Y08 for the bell and stars, and R27 for his nose. I adhered  the image to a piece of green cardstock, also from the same collection, cut slightly larger than the image, then attached that to the left end of my striped piece.

For my sentiment,  I stamped the words " Merry Christmas" with one of the clear stamps I had on hand on white cardstock, and cut a piece of the green cardstock just a bit larger and added the sentiment on top of that. I attached that to the striped panel with dimensional tape.

To finish off my card, I dotted some silver Viva Decor Glitter Liner on the stars, and randomly around the image, and on the corners of my sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed checking out my little reindeer card, and I hope you have the chance to leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.
