More quick & easy reindeer Christmas cards

Yesterday I shared some quick & easy Christmas cards using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp & punch bundle & Wonderful Year stamp set. Here are a couple more using minimal supplies that you could easily mass produce before December comes.

First up, a trio of reindeers.

Here they are up close & personal.

The reindeer are crumb cake card stamped with early espresso ink & punched out. Rudolf's antlers are coloured with a soft suede marker & his nose is stamped in red with edges coloured with an early espresso marker. I can't resist adding a bow tie. The other reindeer antlers & nose are coloured with a crumb cake marker. Truth be told, I think I prefer my reindeer stamped in soft suede ink (like the cards in this post), but this give you another idea to try.

Next up, I made a four legged reindeer.

To me he looks like a cute baby reindeer. What do you think?  To make his body I punched two cookie cutter shapes; one in crumb cake & one in early espresso . I added some half circles for hooves (owl punch) & added a cute tail (fox builder punch). Here's his close up.

I finished off the card with some tiny punched hearts - a fab extra shape in the Cookie Cutter punch too. I layered about 3 shapes together to create some extra depth.

So, that's more quick ideas for you to try. Are you a Cookie Cutter Christmas fan yet? Lots more to share, but I'll finish for now. Until next time.|
Inky wishes, Di

Di, you certainly have inspired me! I made 16 cards yesterday based on your gorgeous design - thank you!! And I just love your cute baby reindeer - so sweet and very clever! I am also loving that bonus heart in the cookie cutter punch - a really perfect mini size. Sherylee.
