Christmas in July - CCT

I've been a bit of a manic Crafter these past few weeks, making up samples for my latest Crafty Templates sets but it's not stopped me wanting to have a play for me and because last year I was still making Christmas cards on Christmas eve I figured it could be wise to get just a few cards done a bit earlier this year and stock them up. I do hate {a bit} the idea of making festive cards in summer but I guess these last few weeks it's felt more like winter weather wise so it's not so bad! lolSo anyway this is the card I came up with for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge! I'm making a start on my new Christmas templates this week so I decieded to revisit some of the ones I made last year for some inspiration. This one is the 'Cutesy Reindeer' template {you can get him in the complete animal set or the Christmas 07 set here if you want him}.
I made up the shaped card with the template and then printed the head bit on to glitter card and coloured it in with Galaxy markers. The body bit I decorated with Doodlebug paper and core-dinations card sanded and then embossed with the cuttlebug. The little message bit is Cuttlebug diecuts too just layered and stamped then with a handwritten message to finish.
