I used a plain white card as my base card, and cut a square out of polka dot Christmas patterned paper slightly smaller than the card itself. I then cut a rectangle out of star Christmas patterned paper, which I glued down the left side of the polka dot paper. I cut 2 green glitter star border stickers to the length of the width of the polka dot paper. I then stuck them across the polka dot paper (one above the other, with the flat edges meeting) about 2/3 of the way down. Next I glued a dark green ribbon over the top of where the border edges met. I then glued the Polka dot paper to the card itself.
This time for my image element I made a reindeer out of buttons. I used a large brown button for his head, and cut a small brown button in half for his ears. For his red nose I used a red heart shaped diamontie, which I glued along with 2 googly eyes to the large brown button. I glued the head onto a rectangle of green foil card, and then positioned and glued 1 ear to either side of his head. His antlers were a bit trickier, so I thought I'd give you a more detailed how to pic...
For the antlers you could just use thick gauge beading wire, but I thought it looked a bit plain for this particular card, so I decided to jazz it up a bit. I used brown imitation thonging and thin gauge copper toned beading wire. I wound the beading wire around the end of the thonging several times and crimped it so that the beading wire didn't slide off the thonging. Next I simply held the beading wire in 1 hand and twisted the thonging in the other, this then caused the beading wire to wrap around the thonging. I did this until I had the length I required for the piece of antler, I then wrapped the beading wire around the end of the thonging several times and crimped it once again. I repeated this another 3 times for each antler piece (4 in total, 2 long and 2 shorter). I then bent the pieces into a nice curvy shape, and holding near the bottom of a pair (1 long and 1 shorter) I wrapped beading wire around the bottom of them to hold them together, and then repeated for the other pair.
I then glued them onto the green foil rectangle at the top of the button head. I then used double sided foam tape to attach the green rectangle to the card. Lastly I made a circle Merry Christmas sentiment, which I glued onto a circle of red foil card and then attached to the card also using double sided foam tape.
I really enjoyed making the reindeer, and I would like to thank Anne-Marie from Willow Sketchie Challenge for an awesome sketch. Good luck to all that enter. :D
