Reindeer Holiday by Karens Kardzz

 Hello, it’s Karen here today and I’m back with a trifold Christmas card featuring these Reindeer and a Tree stamps from Gerda Steiner Designs.  

So, in my mind, this card tells the story of Christmas Eve on the front of the card with the reindeer and Santa hard at work as shown here.  I stamped and added the date as if it was a page on the calendar and drew the chimney and rooftop as well as the sack.  I used the Woodland Border die set from Sunny Studios to create the hills and trees, and an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions called Snowfall. The little house is from a Memory Box die set called Cabin Snowglobe. 

What I really love about these trifold cards is that you can have another hidden story on the inside pages.  So for mine, the inside is Christmas Day when Santa and the reindeer are able to have a holiday, or in this case, a snowball fight! 

Now, I’m fairly sure these reindeer weren’t meant to be throwing snowballs, but my imagination just kind of got away from me.  The snowballs are made from Snow-Tex and I just cut rough circles for the fort walls, and used a paper punch for the snowballs once it was dry.  That see-through sky idea is from the amazing Jennifer McGuire who used laminating folders and stamping to create see-through elements.  Here is a link to her video:  I love that these cards feel extra sturdy due to the layers of embossed hills and they stand upright very easily.

I made a video that I posted on my YouTube channel last week showing how I made this style of card.  There are actually two cards on that video so if you want to jump ahead to the second card that features this same stamp set, it starts around the 9:00 minute mark. Here’s the LINK TO MY VIDEO if you would like to see how I made this card.  And here’s what the card on the video looks like.

I hope that these cards may have inspired you or given you some other ideas on how to use these stamps.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day!
