Reindeer Sleigh

Hey everyone - back today with yet another Christmas card. I was excited to pick up a new Hero Arts Stamp and Cut set the other day (love them) & couldn't wait to give it a play. I decided to make an A10 card so I could fit 8 reindeer and the sleigh on it.

reindeer sleigh
Supplies: Paper - Neenah brown and Solar White; Heidi Swapp Marquee Love glitter,
Authentique Christmas Essentials 12x12 pad
Stamps w/matching dies - Hero Arts DC216 Jingle All the Way Stamp and Cut
Stamps - SSS Falling Snow, Hero Arts Envelope Liner Background (retired)
Dies - banner from some MFT Blueprint, Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflakes
Other - Copic markers, foam tape, Michael's gems, gold pen, May Arts string twine

After I cut and stamped all the elements, I realized that I had no Santa to sit in the sleigh. This lead me to placing the sleigh on a rooftop - presumably Santa is inside the house!! I cut a triangle for the roof and then freehand cut some icicle trim to top it. One row of reindeer is popped up, as is the sleigh. I stamped the roof for some texture as well as the sky. For some reason the snow doesn't show up very well; we won't talk about the abortive attempt to use Distress Spray (I saved that piece just in case it works for something else....).

Hope this little scene brings a smile! Thanks for stopping!!

I'm adding this to the Merry Monday Summer Link-up using past challenge 231 Reindeer.

And August!
