Jingling Reindeer Cards...

There is nothing like the sound of jingling bells to get you in the mood for Christmas so why not spread the feeling and use them on some of your special Christmas cards.
Step 1
Gather together your materials

(Papers from Dovecraft and Crafts By Carolyn, reindeer by Crafts for Christmas)

Step 2

Trim patterned paper to fit your card blank, edge with black chalk ink and adhere to card.

Step 3

Trim white cardstock to fit your reindeer, edge with black chalk ink and mat onto black gingham paper. Trim this and edge again using the black chalk ink.

Step 4

Attach your reindeer to the card mat using strong glue (I used my trusty sticks everything glossy accents)

Step 5

Use foam pads to raise your reindeer from the card to give added dimension.

Step 6

Tie a co-ordinating ribbon around your card and thread two silver bells on before securing the knot

I hope you and your family enjoy making and receiving this little jingling reindeer - We always like to see what you have been making so please leave a link in the comments box

Love Andrea xx
