I had yet another night of waking up at 2:30am last night! After tossing and turning I decided to get up, made myself a piece of cinnamon toast and decided to play with my Cricut.
With Design Studio, I cut the reindeer (keypad row 1, image #3 across) from brown patterned paper at 4"tall x 2-1/2" wide, and the background using the shadow feature. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink "Tea Dye" to shade all around the edge of the reindeer's body. Embellishments are a bit of gingham ribbon tied on his neck, a brown pearl for his eye, and red jewel for his nose. The holly in the corner is a die by Sizzix.
The "Christmas" verse at the bottom is from the same cartridge (keypad Row 2, image #10 across). Inside is stamped "have yourself a merry little christmas" by Penny Black.
The oval layer is Spellbinders Labels Ten stamped with Stamper's Anonymous Tim Holtz music script stamp in Tea Dye ink and shaded with Crushed Olive.
Background script reindeer paper is from Basic Grey "Jovial" 6x6 paper pad. Other cardstock is Stampin'Up, and Bazzill scraps.
