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!!

No matter how a card like this arrives, I smile when Bella brings wishes and I’m sure you would, too!  Using punches and Designer Series Paper for the background, I found this card was easy to put together.  I used the Real Red Stampin’ Blend to add a little pop of colour and decided to leave Bella au naturelle!

This is a design that can easily be adapted to any colour.  During our monthly card class, the ladies were given a choice of colours – these are their creations (as well as another Gorgeous Grape sample that I made) – aren’t they so cute?
