CADB: Patchwork Reindeer

It's time again for another Card A Day Blog entry, and this week's theme is Christmas Animals. I thought this cute little patchwork reindeer, from Clear Dollar Stamps, was just adorable, and I'm sure you'll agree.

For my patterned background paper, I used the diagonal blue and white striped paper from the DCWV Christmas Ultimate Scrapbook Kit in a Stack, that I purchased a few years ago, so I'm not sure if it's still available anymore. I cut that piece at 5.25 x 4". I also used a dark blue with snowflakes patterned paper from the same pack, cut to 4.5" x 3.5", and used it to mat my image and ribbon.

For my image, I printed my image at about 2" x 3", on a piece of white card stock, then trimmed it fairly close to the image. I then colored the image with my Copic markers, BV00, YG41, B23 and B12. I adhered the image to the left side of the mat.

On the right side of the mat, I cut a piece of light blue card stock paper at 1" x 3.5", added a piece of white card stock, cut slightly smaller than the blue piece, adhered that piece to the blue piece then adhered both to the right side of the mat. I added a piece of light blue diamond patterned ribbon, from Really Reasonable Ribbon, with wedges cut on the ends, and added a piece of rick-rack to the middle of that. On the inside of the card, I stamped, " Merry Christmas" from one of the stamps I have in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my latest creation, and that you leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
