Little Claire reindeer



Here's a card I've made with one of the new Christmas stamps from Little Claire, that will be available in the store very soon.  I love this reindeer - isn't he cute?  I've used promarkers to colour him, and nesties and nellie snellen circle dies to cut him out.  Embossed some coredinations whitewash cardstock with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder, then sanded it all back to reveal some of the colour underneath.  Red cardstock from my stash.  The card base is a normal square but I've cut half of the front out to leave a triangle - the pic below shows the shape better.


I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
**I have candy available at the moment - there's a link in the top right of my blog if you'd like to enter**
