Gingerbread Reindeer?

How are you liking my Sneak Peeks of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog that is almost here? Am I making you drool yet? So a few coordinating products are making their way to you soon that I just love. Not only do we have a gingerbread-shaped punch called the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch....we have two coordinating stamp sets! WooHoo I love it when that happens! We have the Cookie Cutter Christmas and the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp sets. Today I am using the Christmas one:

So where is the cookie on this card? Turn the reindeer upside-down and you'll see the shape of the gingerbread! I stamped 3 of them using Early Espresso Ink and I stamped one more using Real Red Ink. I cut the nose only from the red one and glued it over the espresso one:

The inspiration for this card came from the Holiday Catalog. I changed up the cardstock and designer paper layers (cause I can do that!), and added the Vellum Cardstock layer  before adding the trio or punch art reindeer. Here are the measurements for you because I just know you're going to want this bundle:
  • Card Base: Crumb Cake Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center and fold.
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Candy Cane Lane Designer paper 5" x 3-3/4". Glue to card front.
  • Layer #4: Vellum Cardstock 2" x 4-1/4". Glue to card front about 1-1/2" from the top. TIP: I added glue to the vellum where I knew the reindeer would cover so it wouldn't show through!
  • Reindeer: Stamp (4) reindeer, (3) using Early Espresso Ink and (1) using Real Red Ink. Hand-cut the nose from the Real Red reindeer and glue to one of the Early Espresso reindeer. Use the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to cut all 3 reindeers. Glue them over the vellum, using Stampin' Dimensionals for the one in the center.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using Early Espresso Ink below the vellum layer.

  1. I love that the gingerbread man shape can be used to punch out these deer! Too cute and fun.
