On the large side

That is the Christmas card I made yesterday not me personally tee hee

My Mum mentioned about the Christmas card I gave her and my Dad last year as being rather small and" not worth the stamp"!!!! lol so I thought right ...... I will make a large one for this year. Still this is only A5 size but should be "worth the stamp!" :)

I have used Basic Grey papers which are very Christmasy I think and a beautiful reindeer from Tando. I haven't used any of their chipboard before but I must say it is very sturdy and very well cut, keeping it's shape when I applied the colour and decorations. I inked my Rudolf with Distress Ink in Vintage Walnut and have given him a Stickles nose and Glossy Accented eye.

I will be ticking off Hazel's Christmas Card Challenge Number 7 "Feature a Creature" for this card.

Thanks for stopping bye.

You've certainly featured a lovely creature! Lovely card - had to laugh at your mum's comment. Thanks for joining in challenge 7 (don't forget there's a current challenge - let's see a sentiment) x

Have they never heard the expression "It's not the size that counts"? Love thsis though, a fab way to showcase the reindeer!
