Cookie Cutter Reindeer Greetings

Cookie Cutter Reindeer Greetings

I love this little guy – especially when he’s bringing Cookie Cutter Reindeer Greetings to my friends!  The cookie cutter stamp set has five (5) images that you can use the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch to cut them out.  When you first look at the punch, it appears as though the images would have the legs going down like the Gingerbread Boy.  But a closer look, along with trying it on the reindeer, makes you realize that it actually does work on all five images!!

When blue is your favourite colour and you want a simple, impressive Christmas card, you can always rely on the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to help you out!  Stampin’ Up! always has a variety of Designer Series Paper (DSP) with patterns that coordinate with their cardstock.  Because of this, I find it so easy to have all the components match and/or compliment each other in my projects.
