Seasons Greetings Bird card

One more project to share for today. Again, this is one of my projects from last year. I have to apologize that I don't remember everything I used for this project. I made this card just for show so it isn't really a functioning card, however it can definitely be made to function just by scoring theplain circle and the large scallop circle about a quarter of the way from the top.

To get the plain circle cutout in between the two scalloped circles, I just traced an old CD onto very vanilla cardstock and cut it out by hand. It was just the right size and it came out perfectly.

For the sentiment, I used a rub-on from the Season of Cheer set which is now retired. However, for any SU Demonstrator, this rub-on set is part of the Inventory Blowout Sale! ;)

Reindeer Lineup

The holidays are just around the corner. That means its about the time to start creating those handmade cards so they can make it in the mail in time. :)
Today's card isn't quite a start on my holiday cards this year so I'm still a little behind on my card making. But this is one of the many cards I sent out last Christmas. I ABSOLUTELY love this stamp set! Granted, coloring multiple images of these silly reindeer wasn't exactly easy BUT it was SUPER FUN!! I totally enjoyed coloring/painting these reindeer for this card. Aren't they adorable? Its a pretty simple card since I spent so much time painting the image, I didn't want to waste too much time with assembling the rest of the card.
Hope you like the card as much as I do. I know the stamp set is still in the current catalog but unfortunately, the ribbon and designer series paper was from an older catalog. Sorry gang. (However, for those demonstrators out there, this ribbon is part of the Inventory Blowout Sale!)
