I'd spotted a Christmas Card challenge earlier and as I had a die I wanted to try out, decided to make a card.  This  challenge was mentioned by two of my blog friends Rita and Valery but now the card is made I can't find a link to the challenge but I'm popping it on here anyway.  In hindsight and now I see the card on the screen I'm not too sure these creatures actually qualify as reindeer but high-ho at least I've made another Christmas card ready for later this year so nothing lost!!   At least is a change from my recent run of wedding themed cards.

I cut the die out using black card which was the right size for the card and backed it with a slightly lighter piece of snowflake print paper (left over from last year).  The snowflakes and greeting were die cut from pearl card and that's it - a fairly quick and simple card.

Main die - unbranded
Snowflakes - freebie die from magazine last year
Greeting - Tonic die
Background Paper - printed from Artylicious Seasons Greetings CD


  1. The die looks good against your snowflake background! Lovely card.
    I think the challenge is the Christmas Card Club challenge - but don't know the link address - sorry.
    But there is a reindeer challenge at Sparkles -

  2. Hi Val,
    what a very lovely card and that scene die is fabulous.
    Looks very much like a reindeer too me.
    Viv is right the it is a Christmas card club that you join and show your Christmas makes chosen by each of the memebers in turn each forthnight on a Sunday.
    But it is not a challenge like we think of just a challenge between it's members.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. I have to agree with Jenny, they look like they would pass as reindeer to me. It's a fantastic card.

  5. What a fantastic die cut winter scene Val and love the added snowflakes and large sentiment using the pearl card, and a very pretty soft snowflake dp for the background which works beautifully. x

  6. Hi Val

    I think we must have similar tastes .. .. this unbranded die has also popped through my letterbox and is waiting to be used!! LOL!!

    I love the background you have used. It almost looks like a moon background.

    Hope my card looks this good when I get to play with mine.

    Love Jules xx
