Santa's Sleigh Christmas - simply neutral

Today I'm sharing some cards I made way back in September for my Christmas launch display but didn't make it here yet, despite being some of my fave cards this year.
They were also the cards that started my crumb cake, soft suede & copper obsession (also seen on these Star of Light cards & these Cookie Cutter Christmas cards). Anyway, I digress...

Reindeer Trio

I'm sure you've gathered that I have a thing for reindeer & I love these ones from Santa's Sleigh. Super simple recipe - fave sentiment from Wonderful Year, 3 reindeer, & a touch of copper washi for more shine. Here are the reindeer up close & Christmassy. Oh how I love them! The copper foil & metallic copper washi gives such a lovely sheen not really showing in the pic.

The reindeer are soft suede ink on soft suede & crumb cake card & stazon black ink on copper foil as normal ink smears. It would have looked cool heat embossed in copper too, but the stazon kept it quick & easy.

One more reindeer & sentiment from Wonderful Year on the inside finishes it off. Done & love!

Christmas Tree Trio

This card was based on an idea shared in our Stampin' Success Demonstrator magazine. The embossed star front gives lots of texture & the stamped & die cut trees add details.The trees are all stamped with soft suede ink, on white, crumb cake & soft suede card. Have I sold you on this fab combination yet?

 One more tree & coordinating sentiment on inside - all from Santa's Sleigh too.

Both these ideas can easily be mass produced with minimal supplies, so that's a win, especially since I still have tons of Christmas cards to finish.

Speaking of finishing, that's all from me for now. I have a couple more Santa's Sleigh projects to share so fingers crossed you'll see them very, very soon. In the meantime, see all my Santa's Sleigh projects here

In the meantime, pin these ideas for later if you're lucky enough to have finished your cards, or use them now to help you get started or finished. All the supplies I used are listed below & available to order from my store.

Inky wishes, Di
