MFT Warmest Wishes...

 I am so super excited to be guesting today at My Favorite Things!  I have a fun little CAS Christmas card for you today.  I don't know about you, but I have been making more Christmas cards this year than ever before.  Wanna know a secret? Shutterfly usually makes my cards for me. What?  (gasp!) I know, right?  Well this year....I may actually be sending lots of handmade cards.  I am happy about that!  

Today's card was so fun to make.  I am not usually one who likes to color.  I love a quick and simple card but when I saw this little reindeer from Christmas Cuteness, I knew I had to pull out the Copics.

I used Tuxedo Memento Black ink and stamped the image off about 4 times.  After cutting out the adorable Comfy Sweater Die, I stamped it for the 5th time with the reindeer image.  It was a super light image but perfect for hiding those dark lines.  I used 3 colors of brown and colored in the image.  I usually have trouble when things don't look clean and in the lines but I did my best to let that go this time.  I love the watercolor look that resulted.

I added a little red pearl to his nose before matting the sweater with this fun chevron Doodlebug paper.  Last, I stamped the sentiment from Warmest Wishes to finish the card off. Oh, I almost forget the rounded edges on the top.  I used the 1/4" side of my Corner Chomper for that last little detail.

I hope you enjoy my CAS card!  Hope you have a very Merry Christmas season!  I'll be back again soon for another post!  Thanks so much to MFT for having me!
