Red Robins and Reindeer.

Hi again :)

First things first, I would like to say a big "thank you" to everybody who has been viewing my blog. It's really encouraging and the comments have been great. I am hoping to open an Etsy store some time soon with lots of crafty goodies. Stay tuned!

In my bid to be more organised this Christmas, I have made some more Christmas cards. In one of my recent posts, I came up with a really quick and simple design, (take a peek at them here), so I have carried the same design through, just used some different papers.

Card stock by American Crafts (crimson)
Papers & die cuts by Docrafts Papermania "Classic Christmas" designed by Stephanie Dymant
Other paper (very first layer) from my scrap box
Inks by Versa Color (cardinal and winter green)

I haven't seen too many red robins on Christmas paper. Good for something a bit different.

And another with some little reindeer - their antlers and legs at least :)

I also did some detailing on the inside of each card, but it didn't photograph too well. I have some really lovely wintry/traditional paper leftover from last year so might use some more of that next with a different design. Being in Australia, I am used to a roasting hot Christmas weather-wise, but the idea of a white Christmas has always appealed to me. One day :)

Thanks for visiting :)



  1. That is a really cute design, I might try something like that with my kids in class this year for our Christmas cards. Unfortunately I don't think they will come out as professional looking.

    1. Thanks Tan. I would love to see what the kids make. I am sure they will do a super job :)
