No Peeking for Merry Monday


One of Santa's reindeer from the No Peeking stamp set made it to the front of this Christmas card for Merry Monday Challenge #33. I tried adding black rhinestones and pearls for the eyes, but it made the reindeer look a bit mad! lol

 
I did end up with pearls on the designer paper. But first, the Very Vanilla card was embossed with the Argyle folder, then I tied a Cherry Cobbler seam binding bow around the middle. The reindeer fit in one label framelit, and I used the next size up with Be of Good Cheer dsp. You can see from the sketch below that I just turned it on its side.
 
 
I love simple sketches like this! I am using this card for a 10-card Christmas class. I'd love to hear what you think about this card. Then you should visit the other designers to see their amazing creations!
