how to train your reindeer!

Happy Sunday!

how are we all doing? feeling Christmasy? here its kinda a weird as its red hot so I am still confused by it. But we are all set- tree is up, lights outside, turkey in freezer...where i am wishing i was currently!

So I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- Christmas
Craft Heaven shop inspiration and challenge blog- winter wonderland
Magnolia-licious challenge blog- Anything goes with the option of Christmas
Paradise of Magnolia challenge blog- Anything goes
Paradise of Stamps- Anything goes
Deep Ocean challenge blog- Santa is coming to town

This card was made for my three year old to be on Christmas eve nephew and I wanted to make it fun and bright. I thought a shaker card would be great for him as he can interact with the card. So with it being for the little guy I used baby Rudolph as hes only little too. I coloured Rudolph with Distress Inks.

I used papers from Doodlebug Designs and its such a great collection for kids this one. Lots of fun colours and images and George loves cars, truck, wagons and all that sort of thing so it was a  must.

I used the same tutorial as always for the twist and pop card.

On the front the shaker circle is from Impression Obsession and I used shaker material from neat and tangled these colours work perfect with the papers. I added some jingle bells to one of the tags that was die cut from a Magnolia die. The snowflakes are also from Magnolia and the jingle tag is from Tim Holtz.

On the inside I used some of the little pictures that come with the collection. Perfect again for kids.

I used the Santa die from Magnolia and the Santa clothing die again (its been used a lot these two dies !) from Joy Crafts. I added snow marker on the clothes cut outs.

The rest of the card pictures are from the paper collection too.

I added a secret tag compartment like in the tutorial.

Have a great week ahead.
