Die Cuttin’ Divas’ next two challenges are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps, and we were each given a file to work with. They have lots of files made by lots of designers to choose from. I chose Christmas Reindeer by Coosty Creations.
I thought the reindeer was so elegant, and the papers so Christmassy! The theme this week at DCD is a shaped card, and my original thought was to use the reindeer shape, but she’s just too darn cute to be made that big. In my mind, she’s just a fawn, so I scaled her down a bit. Now she was too small for a shaped card, so she became an element on this Noel card:
I used a font on my computer called St. Nicholas (very fitting!) to make the word, and filled in with the two green papers that came with the Christmas Reindeer pack. I added tiny rhinestones for her collar and her nose and popped her up a bit. Her eye is just drawn in using a thin black marker.
Head on over to Die Cuttin’ Divas to see what the other design team members did with their Stitchy Bear stamps, then join in the fun with your own shaped card!
If you stop by here next Tuesday, you’ll see how I used the file in a different way!
