The most famous reindeer of all

I have a cute Christmas card to share today featuring Little Christmas Girl 1 from All Dressed Up.

With this card I have successfully made a Christmas card a week in January ~ whoo hoo!  Not sure if this will last through February but it’s way better than I was last year.  I am really loving the prompts at the various Christmas card challenges I’ve started following.  This card was inspired firstly by Christmas with the Cuties where the prompt is Christmas carols and songs.  No prizes for guessing my song is Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, this little cutie literally sang “pick me” (see what I did there with the sing reference?!) out of my Christmas files to be used on this card.

I’ve also used the inspiration photo at Merry Monday to help design my card.  The picture included white iced biscuits with little balls for decoration.  I’ve picked that up in my background paper by adding bitty pearls over the embossed dots on the cardstock.  I’ve also used the hot chocolate as the cue for my brown cardstock and the splashes of red and green are brought in with the side panels, I’ve just toned the colours down to more muted ones.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at Sketch Saturday, I just rotated the centre element to allow for my image.  Because this is the year of the shaker card I’ve turned the two rectangular elements into shakers.

Given this card features a cute Christmas image I am also entering it in the something cute challenge over at Crimbo Crackers.  Sweet Stampin’ Christmas has gone anything goes so I am linking my card there too.
