City Crafter Challenge #137

If you’re looking for my ColourQ card, you can check it out here!  Today, I have a special post for you!  I was excited to learn a few weeks back that one of my cards was a winner at the City Crafter Challenge Blog and this is the week that I am honored to be the guest designer!  The challenge theme is to make a Christmas easel card!  I hadn’t made an easel card for a while, so that was a good challenge for me!  Here we go:
I used a Tim Holtz die for my reindeer, punching them from some musical DP, and sponged them for a vintage look.  I stamped some trees on some vintage DP (also TH) and mounted the deer on top.  I also added a little bell to each one’s neck!  The easel part of the card is held in place by a chipboard snowflake, covered with glitter, and a pretty little sentiment from Unity.  The red glimmer brad carries through the red color of the floss I used to hang the bells!
I hope you’ll play along this week and share your Christmas easel card with us at the City Crafter Challenge blog!  Be sure to see what the other designers created this week….I am sure their cards will inspire you as well!  Any questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a holler!

  4. hi LeAnne, It's been a while since I left a comment but I do check up to see what you're up to. I saw you easel card on City Crafter and had to tell you that it is beautiful, I love the reindeer cut from dp and all your sponging to give it the vintage look. It's just gorgeous - but not a gorgeous as your grand daughter, how sweet is she, I just want to pinch those cheeks.
