Color Me Christmas for CCMC277

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  This week we have a sketch, a square one for a change up.

I haven't done a square card in quite awhile, so this was a fun challenge!  I went with a smaller size square, 4 1/4".    Color me Christmas was the first set to jump into my head, here's what I came up with.

I have been into making Christmas cards, so I figured I'd just replace the flower in the sketch with a cute little reindeer!  Here are all the details.

1.  Cut Gumball Green cards stock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" to make my 4 1/4" square card.

2.  Cut Real Red card stock 3 3/4" x 1 3/4" then embossed it with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  Added it to my card with SNAIL.

3.  Cut a 3/4" x 3 3/4" strip of polka dot paper from the Season of Style DSP pack. Added it to the card next to the Real Red card stock.

4.  Stamped the reindeer on Whissper White card stock with StazOn Black ink.  Colored him in using a blender pen and re-inkers.  Fussy cut him out.  I used Soft Suede for his body.  Real Red with Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive for his scarf and sweater.

5.  Cut a strip of Sahara Sand 3/4"x 4 1/4" and made a banner end using the hexagon punch.  Stamped "very merry Christmas" from Endless Wishes.    Added the banner to the card with SNAIL and the reindeer with dimensionals.

A super cute and fast card!  So much so that I made a second card with the Santa!
