Cookie Cutter Christmas - Final Make and Take Card

In my last post I showed you the card I used as my Make & Take for most of my October Parties.

I had one Party this month that had growing numbers in the run up to it. It reached a point where I knew the card I had planned for it would be too 'complex' for the potential number of people going, so I had to simplify it.

This is the result. It basically uses many of the products used in the other card. The layout design is similar too, but I changed the orientation of it.

Using the Reindeer made the focal point much easier and quicker to create. It was stamped in Early Espresso ink onto Crumb Cake card. The antlers and ears were then coloured using Stampin' Markers.

We used the Owl Punch to punch out the nose from Red Glimmer card.

Cookie Cutter Christmas - Make & Take Card

This is the card I used as my Make & Take for most of my Parties this month. The layout is based on This card.

I had to change it a little to make it more 'Party' friendly - there was no room for a Big Shot so I couldn't use the Layering Circle framelits - instead we used punches :o)

The paper is of course, Candy Cane Lane.

The background was stamped using one of the Snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes.

I used the Aqua Painter and ink pads to colour - although some of the ladies used Blender Pens or the Stampin' Markers, depending on their experience :o)

The Mica Flakes were a big hit .... so easy to use!
