Time for another Jingle Belles card! This week we were asked to use a reindeer, or any critter, really. HELLO! Reindeer - I haz some! Lookie:
Okay, it's a little dark, as the lighting in my "photo studio" still sux, plus I used no white or vanilla on the card. Oooh, maybe that's another good possible challenge - you should suggest it! :)
I used two coordinating papers for the background and behind the reindeer (image from a Kim Hughes set from CHF). The string of lights behind the critter makes it look like he is wearing a light on a necklace, but he is not. And the red scarf was something I just needed to do, what with that long neck and all, plus it gives a pop of color to the otherwise blah papers (with no white or vanilla to set it off.)
Now you may ask why I chose two panels for the background. I could tell you I was being terribly artistic, but unfortunately that would be a lie. You see, I have this problem remembering what the Hambo Hoedown challenge is each week, and this week it is a gate-fold card, so I had that etched in my brain and I cut and scored the base of my Jingle Belles card for a gate-fold card. DOH! So I had those two pieces already cut, and they fit ... I used them. Not so very exciting as being "artistic", but it's the truth.
Now, let's see if I remember to make my Hambo card as a gate-fold card. Pfhtfht.
Now get out your critter stamps, make a Christmas card, and link it up over at Jingle Belles Rock! I command it! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
