Reindeer Training

Yes, I am still sharing Christmas cards lol. As soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I had to have it! 

This stamp is perfect for a very good friend of mine who owns the farm I boarded my horse at. She trains horses as well as the boarding side of the business so she will appreciate the "in training" part of this image. 

The idea for this card has bounced around in my head for quite a while. Thankfully I don't exchange gifts with my friend until after Christmas, which has given me a little time to make sure this card is exactly what I had in my head. I think it may be my favourite of all my Christmas cards this year.

For this card I created the "scene" separately and then fussy cut the image - yes, my cuticle scissors got a work out but I am very happy with how the finished card came out. 

I used pop dots to adhere this cute little guy to the card.
