• Add jewels to each of the corners on the crimson cardstock

To make Dana's card...
File used- Christmas 3D Accents
... Paper- Recollections Xmas paper and asst card stock
Red Gross grain ribbon
White gel pen
Blue and Black chalk pencil
Black Fine Sharpie pen

Make a shadow layer of the scallop shape and weld together the two shadow scallops with a small rectangle (not part of file) to make the base of your card. Cut the base card in desired color card stock. Then cut the other scallop and big circle in card stock and smaller circle in patterned paper.

Shadow scallop (aqua) measures approx. 5 1/4 in.
Red scallop approx. 5 1/8 in.
White circle 4 5/8 in.
Patterned paper circle 4 3/8 in.

For the reindeer I just assembled him on my virtual mat and adjusted size accordingly.

I did not add a sentiment to my card, just ribbon to dress him up! The inside of the card has a layer of red scallop and white circle for writing.
Thanks for stopping by!  See you tomorrow for our final day of cards!!
