Double Trouble 90 - Baby Reindeer Slimline

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 90! 

This week, it's all about baby animals... and puns if you so choose. The small graphic is below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for detailed information. 

Baby animals... that's a tough one for me as I just don't have any regular stamps with baby animals - none! I pulled out my Christmas stamps and found a reindeer that looks like a baby reindeer so that is what I chose to use. 

I stamped all the inside images, coloured and fussy cut each of them. The frame was stamped and then I used the coordinating layering stencils to add colour to it. I don't have the die for that set so I fussy cut around both the inside and the outside of the frame. I also die cut a stitched slimline rectangle and arranged the pieces inside the frame to form a winter scene. I stencilled some clouds at the top and die cut some borders to use as snow at the bottom. The flowers on the frame were brushed with a red shimmer brush and I also added some gold Stickles around the leaves and flowers. The card was set on a light blue background and then on the slimline card base. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this week's challenge.
