Reindeer and I were looking through some old, three cent postage stamps from 1956 when we came upon the perfect one. Well, almost perfect. It wasn’t a reindeer, but it was a Pronghorn Antelope commemorating Wildlife Conservation, and it was brown.

I glued four of the stamps to cardstock, and used a die from Santa’s Sleigh to give Reindeer some style. 

 

He wanted to be the center of attention, so we decided to let him stand out on Whisper White that was embossed with the Softly Falling folder. He likes cold weather, and thinks the snow makes it feel like Christmas time.

I have to explain about the “merry” that isn’t in the current catalog. I attended “Create the Day Away yesterday” (Peggy Noe and Linda Foster organized it), and there were retired Stampin’ Up! items for sale. I cannot resist paper words! I was anxious to use this “new to me” Christmas Greeting word, and die cut the “merry” from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. It would make the triangular shapes needed for this week’s CAS(E) this sketch. 

 

We decided on a card base of Crumb Cake to match Reindeer’s fur, layered with striped, Be Merry Designer Series Paper to tie it all together.

 

Reindeer was very helpful, and we both appreciated the interesting design from CAS(E) this sketch. Thank you!
