Christmas Critter

New this month at Christmas cards all Year Round we are challenged to use little critters in our Christmas cards. I made this one with a Close to My Heart stamp set. It's quite old but fit the challenge so well. 

I stamped the Christmas lights onto the card base. I turned the stamp before joining the next line of lights. I think there are only four lights that are connected together. I colored the lights in with distress markers. I stamped the reindeer onto pearlized cardstock by Recollections with Her Arts black ink. After it dried completely I die cut and embossed the image out with a Spellbinders die. The patterned paper is by Martha Stewart (red closest to the image), Basic Grey (corners), and October Afternoon (blue polka dots). The cardstock is by Recollections and the sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp. 

Thanks for looking.
