Santa and Reindeer

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

It is Pam on the blog today.

I am continuing to make a few more Christmas cards for friends and family.  Believe it or not I am almost finished.  My family all live back east so I need to get them in the mail very soon.   I am using a few new dies today to create this fun flip/swing card. There is also a cute surprise on the inside!

Design Steps:
1.  Use the Santa Reading to His Reindeer die and cut out all the pieces.  I used mainly Kraft and white card stock then colored the different pieces as needed
2.  Shade the pieces and then assemble with a fine tip glue
3.  Create the base of the flip card.  There are a number of great videos on YouTube to create the base.  Just type in flip card or swing card.  I used designer paper to create the layer of snowflakes and glitter paper for the snow on the bottom.  Glue the DP to the flaps and the snow to the bottom

4.  On the right side I popped up two deer as shown
5.  On the left side I popped up the largest deer and I cut a circle for the center using the snowflake DP and the Cross Stitched Circle die.  I also cut white glitter card stock using the Santa's Express Tag and glued it to the cross stitched circle
6.  When you flip open the card you will see Santa.  I colored him with copic makeres and nudged him a little off center so the card would flip.  For the Ho Ho Ho I used part of the Hot Cocoa Tag and just cut away the HO cutting it three times. Add a few snowflakes cut from the Winter Window die.  Stamp the Merry Christmas and your card is complete

This was a fun card to create.  I will probably send it off to one of my fellow card makers! Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate it!
