Washi Reindeer Card

** This card was chosen as a Favorites of the Week this week on Splitcoast Stampers **

Had seen a few versions of this card made up here and there. Used #110 weight white card stock from Mikes for the card stock base. Red is Stampin Up. Front white piece is white card stock from PaperTreyInk. Here is the card:

Used various washi tapes from the stash for this card. First I cut and scored the white card stock base. Set that aside. Using SU red card stock I trimmed that to the size I would need for my card front. Cut the white card front a bit smaller than the red piece.

To keep the washi tapes straight I made a very light pencil line across the white card stock and then put down the green holly/berries tape. Put a red print above and below the holly/berry tape. Then put a striped tape above and below that. Pressed down to make sure the tape would stick to the card front piece. Used the ATG and put the washi tape card front onto the red card front. Then put these onto the white card stock base.

Stamped "Merry Christmas!" on the lower card front using SU Real Red ink. That stamp is from the SU Greetings from Santa stamp set. For the reindeer I had seen this used just as a die cut piece without stamping it first and that is the look I wanted for this card. I cut the reindeer out of scrap #110 weight white card stock. Put the reindeer onto the washi tape using dimensionals.

Used the large and small bow punches from Holly Lobby for the red foil bow with the smaller red glittered card stock bow on top of that for the front of the reindeer:

Easy card to put together and great use for washi tapes. TFL  See below for another version of this card in reds and whites:

Again used the red foil card stock for the larger bow punched piece with the smaller bow punched out of the red glittered card stock. TFL
