Rudolph the red nosed reindeer!

I put a TON of work and time into this little card and just absolutetly love it! This is a shaker card using THIS tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. I used Old Olive as the card base even though you can't see it. Night of Navy is used for the background, I stamped the snow from itty bitty backgrounds in whisper white craft ink for that.

For the inside:

The trees are cut out with quickutz in old olive and a green from bazzil that I'm not sure of the name. Rudolph is also cut out from quickutz and is in creamy caramel, a dark brown from bazzil and real red. The tail of rudolph is another dear head but just the ear. The 'snow' or glitter has kinda stayed stuck to his eyes. :( I'm a little disappointed in that but it doesn't take away from the card much. I used stickles for the ornaments on the tree and Snow Tex for the snow on the trees. The star is cut out using my cricut in So Saffron then I used stickles on it as well. The front tree is popped up with dimensionals.


All of the parts here are also cut from quickutz. The two browns used for the sleigh was Close to Cocoa and a light brown that I don't know the color. My friend let me have some of it for contrast. Santa is cut out in three colors, Blush Blossom, Whisper White and Real Red. Then cut apart and pieced together. I used stickles on him as well. The reigns is black embroider thread.

The reindeer:

Are cut out with quickutz and used the same brown as the sleigh. I colored in their noses and hooves with a black marker.
