Evergreen Reindeer Christmas Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm on a buffalo plaid kick lately. Last week was red, buffalo plaid. Today I'm showing you how I created a green, buffalo plaid Christmas card.


The first thing I did was die cut the Memory Box Evergreen Reindeer from green, buffalo plaid paper.


 I was originally going to keep it as is, but I felt like the trees were a little lost so I cut it down to a square. Then I decided I wanted the deer to be a black silhouette so I colored in the deer with a black sharpie. The deer needed some more thickness so I die-cut the deer from black cardstock twice, cut the deer out, and glued the layers together. 

Next, I added foam tape to the back of the green buffalo plaid panel and decided to back it with some wood looking patterned paper.

Then I went on the search for background paper. I decided to stick with green and black.


I used the Yvonne Creations Merry Christmas die again. I don't see this die in the store right now, but Dies R Us has several that would work HERE. I cut it multiple times so I could layer them for more thickness.


The final step was putting it all together and adding a bow to the top. 
 

Here are the products I used:

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month, and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!
