Wobbling Reindeer Cards

Good morning friends

I like to work on Christmas cards all year long, so today's share are the cards I made for our Grandkids for next holiday season. This year things were so hectic that I struggled to get their cards made in time. Next year, I'll be prepared.

I had purchased this Reindeer die on clearance last Spring when we were visiting Arizona. I haven't done much with it so decided to go ahead and use it for these cards.

I ran the die through a second time cutting just the head area, and popped it up over the base layer with foam tape. The antlers were sponged darker and I added glitter glue to it as well. Then, tied some Bakers Twine around their necks. Oh, and I used a regular hole punch to punch their noses out of red card stock.

The ground pieces were cut with Karen Burniston's Outdoor Edges, and the card bases are A2 in size and GLOSSY. It is hard to see in the photos, but it makes the reindeer really pop as the gloss catches the light.

Just for fun, I attached each reindeer with an Action Wobble so they bob and wobble around  on the card. Totally fun and I'm going to need to buy some more Action Wobbles soon. :-)
