Silly Reindeer Skiing

Even though Halloween is in the history books for 2020 you can still pick up the Halloween release dies (14 new designs) at a 25% savings and you will be set for next year's cardmaking. 

Today, I have for your viewing pleasure a card featuring the new Silly Reindeer Skiing die from the Christmas Part 1 release. . This die is too cute, and I thought it would be perfect for a family member who like to ski. 
But don't limit it to Christmas. It would also work for a winter birthday card or as a thank you for a Christmas gift received. So let's get started on some details of how I created my card.

Design Steps:

I knew I wanted to make a snowy scene with the reindeer, so, I looked for some background designer paper. I found this blue (pool party) paper and paired it with a white layer panel and then a red card base. I made this slightly larger than the A2 size card.

Red Card Base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
White Layering Panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer Paper Layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Next, I cut the reindeer in colors to match the designer paper. I used red & green cardstock because these are Christmas reindeer after all!

I cut a couple of snow slopes for the reindeer to ski down. I added some chunky white glitter to put some sparkle on the slopes. 
I attached these to the designer paper with double sided foam adhesive to lift the slopes off the background. 
Now the reindeer images are ready to be attached. I also used the double sided foam adhesive to attach. 
After I attached the snow slopes I realized I forgot to stamp my sentiment. Fortunately, The dimensional adhesive was used on the top of the slope and the bottom part was flat. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in red ink and it only required one inking for a good impression. 
To finish off my card I attached the image panel to the white layer with double sided tape. Then it was attached to the red card base. I used a few red glitter enamel dots for some added interest. 
And, that's my card for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use this cute die for a Christmas card. See you next Saturday! This die is on sale at 25% off. See it in the online store here
