Christmas in July

Hi Friends,

I don't know about you but I love Christmas and believe it or not it is only 5 3/4 months away. I am so looking forward to Christmas this year because I will have all my family with me. I have been waiting for a long time to have all of us together.
While I can not show you the new Mini Catalogue I can tell you that you will love it I want one of almost everything. But I will have to be satisfied with what my budget will allow. Whaaaaaaaaa

In my box of new toys I got the stamp called Dasher. I loved the reindeer in Winter Post from last year and I was thrilled to see a single reindeer stamp in the new catalogue. I also got the Movers and Shapers Sizzex die cut and had to play with it. It may take a few trys to get it just right.

So I made this card using those two new products.
Sorry, the picture is not that great. I stamped the Reindeer in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I cut it out as a oval and layered it on Chocolate Chip. I sponged edge of the white card stock with Real Red.
I used Versa Mark and stamped the snowflakes from the Hostess set Christmas Punch on the front of the card. I cut out the shape with the Movers and Shapers die. Inside the die cut area I used another stamp from the Christmas Punch set. I wanted some more color so I added two swirls from the Swirl die cut.
Thanks for visiting. God Bless

This is the second card I've seen with Dasher. I am definitely going to have to add him to my list. He is too cute, and the cards are way too pretty not to use him this Christmas!
