New Year, new (ish) challenge

Hello folks (if there is anyone still out there) & a happy new year to you.  Not quite sure what happened to December, things sort of ran away with me.  It didn't help that my craft room is used as a dumping ground for all the last-minute-tidying-away-before-the visitors-arrive.  That's going to take a while to excavate.
Which is why this post is purely digital.  These cards were created using Silhouette Studio (free to download - you don't have to buy a Silhouette machine), along with Pink Petticoat papers.  The reindeer is a freebie, here. I used the trace feature to get the deer outline, then subtracted it from a square & used the result to crop the papers.  Any simple outline or font could be used.
Using dottie paper in crimson from the Fairy Lights collection
Using berries paper in willow.
Using vintage stars paper in soft silver.
The cards are sized so I can print 3 out on one sheet of A4,  all one layer, easy to send.  I also used this image for some of my Xmas decor this year - printed on photo paper & hung in simple frames from Ikea that usually carry other pictures:
If you know the your friends' colour schemes, you could send a card to match!

  1. What a great idea!!! I love the variations on color and the design is delightfully CAS. Since it's electronic, you could easily print a ton for Christmas 2014 and be done with cards for the year, which certainly makes it perfect for the challenge.

    Thanks so much for playing along with the OLS challenge!

  2. This is just brilliant. You may have just started a new trend in cards and decor! Love this. Bev

  3. Very clever idea - another way to use my Silhouette software!

  4. great cards....thanks for playing along with us at OLS.
