Making this DIY greeting card with the Cookie Cutter reindeer is easy with the help of Stampin' Up! punches, dies and coordinating papers.  When I first started using Stampin' Up! products their coordination in both function and color made starting the craft so easy!  I hope you find this too – leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about using Stampin' Up! products.


Inspiration for this card comes from not only the Mojo Monday Sketch (shown below) but also the theme of the Global Design Project Challenge of a pet or animal themed card.  Cute Clarissa definitely qualifies for the GDP challenge.  Who else is counting the days until Freeform (formerly ABC Family) reveals the 25 Days of Christmas lineup?


“Put on a Happy Face” is a great greeting for anytime to send someone some friendship and acknowledge that you are here for them.   I will have bunches of Christmas cards in my craft room but the end of November so I thought I'd savor making a holiday themed card without specific reference to the holiday.


Of course the inside of the card got some love too!  I added a 1/2″ strip of the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper to bring the front and inside together.

Have you started planning your Christmas Card yet?  Do you send Holiday or Christmas Cards?  All good questions I'd love to know so my blog posts can better serve you.  That's what comments are for so leave me your opinion and I will consider it in the coming weeks as I post new projects.

Thanks for stopping by – see you tomorrow! Linda




I have to say I was very impressed with the creativity when I saw this stamp set.  My hat is off to the artist who thought to turn the design upside down and create a cookie cutter reindeer.
