Reindeer Crossing

Two Christmas cards down! I'm so happy I found Merry Monday as it's really motivating me to get a head start on my Christmas cards. I've now got two finished.


This week, we have been challenged to use buttons on our cards. Initially, I was stumped (again!) but looked through my buttons and found a red oval one and then knew exactly what I wanted to do.


I found the fun reindeer image on VectorStock and created a whole herd! I used my button to turn one into Rudolph and the lot are on a mat cut using Simon Says Stamp's stitched rectangle dies. The banner and sentiment are retired from My Craft Spot.

This is so cute, Kate and a button for Rudolph's nose is a brilliant idea. I think we're missing a reindeer though. ;)
