Make it Monday: a Reindeer Card!
Hello friends! It’s been cool and rainy here in Sydney, the perfect weather for me to bake some traditional Irish Barm Brack (minus the ring for love and a coin for wealth! see last photo). I also had time to create this Christmas card featuring Rudolph:
I used one of my many (many!) retired stamp sets, called Santa’s Sleigh:
I store all my scraps of cardstock in small plastic sleeves and the scraps are perfect for this sort of stamping. I used Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock:
If a stamp set has coordinating dies then it usually goes high on my shopping list!
The dies are a time saver and mean no fussy cutting 🙂
This was probably the fiddliest part:
To give Rudolph his shiny nose I added a dab of glossy accents:
For the background I’ve used this stunning Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder:
Probably overkill with the adhesive foam dots, but I don’t want the deer falling off!
This Christmas greeting on the front of the card comes from another retired set called Tin of Tags and the gold star is punched from glimmer paper (also retired):
MEANWHILE … Halloween isn’t something our family in Australia celebrates, but I did make Irish Barm Brack this morning using gluten free flour so Paul can eat it. 🙂 It’s a cross between cake and bread and is traditionally eaten around Halloween time; tastes extra yummy spread with butter!
Thank you so much for spending time with me today and if you have any questions about this card or the recipe, please ask! Megan xo
