Christmas Blessings

Good Morning Crafters

A quick 7 x 7 card to share with you this morning with full instructions on how to make it.

Take one 7 x 7inch card and colour the edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink.

From the green acorn sheet from the Craft Consortium Winter Woodland paper pad cut a 6.5 x 6.5 inch square.

Cut a 5.5 x 5.5 inch piece from the grey acron sheet, cut a mount from white cardstock and colour with Tea Dye distress ink.  I cut this piece by eye.

Cut a 5.5 inch strip from white cardstock and colour with Tea Dye distress ink.

Die cut the biggest reindeer from Amy Design Christmas Reindeers.  I have used the reverse of the green acorn sheet but you can of course pick any sheet.  Ideally the colour should compliment your first layer and contrast to the last as otherwise it may look lost - and nobody wants a lost reindeer!

Adhere the reindeer using 3D foam pads or tape.  Stamp the sentiment using Sepia Archival Ink and John Next Door Winter Trees stamp set. 

Add one of the Craft Consortium Metal Vintage Acorn Charms I have used a brad from my stash but you could sew it on.

Keep on Crafting.
