The Singing Reindeer card was to fun to make. Thank you Amy Celona for the idea/inspiration. I hope that many of you will try it. It is a great way to use your paper punches too as it uses 7 different punches and one of the Big Shot Sizzlit die.

*Whisper White Card Stock --- 8 1/2" x 11" cut as follows:
.....1 piece 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" , scored at 4 1/4". This is your card base. Crisply crease with bone folder.
.....1 piece 2" x 2 3/4", for large oval punch for the accent on the body
.....1 piece 4 1/4" x 2 3/4" which will be torn from left upper corner down to right lower corner to create the snowdrifts.


Punch out all your designs and make 2 of the Sizzlits Swirls Scribbles.
Make your card base using the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of White Card Stock. Score at 4 1/4" and fold using the bone folder.

Glue the Large Oval (Whisper White) to the 1 3/4" Circle in Creamy Caramel using SNAIL Adhesive.

Using SNAIL Adhesive, glue the antlers to the back of the head. They will resemble hair when attached.

Next using SNAIL adhesive attach the Small Oval in Chocolate Chip to the Wide Oval in Creamy Caramel.

With a small amount of SNAIL Adhesive attach nose, let part of it be off the head. No adhesive on the part that is not on the head.

Draw in teeth and accent on the nose using the Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen.

This is the Curly Label Punch and will be used for the song book.

Fold over in half and crease using the bone folder.

Using Paper Snips, but a V shape in the to and then from the middle side points down to the bottom center point.

The two Word Window pieces in Creamy Caramel will be used for the legs.

I took an set them on the book, then folded over and cut off the excess on the back. Then put SNAIL adhesive on them and attached to the book.


Here's how they look once attached.
If you would like the dark brown hooves, cut the ends off the chocolate chip word window piece and attach to the legs.
Set aside, you will use the book in a minute.


Take the torn pieces that will be the snow drifts and use them as a visual as you decide where to put the body of the reindeer on the card base.


This is the back side of the song book. A dimensional is in the center and you will use SNAIL to attach to the card.

This is the order you will want to put these assembled pieces on your card base:
1. Body (lay the snowdrifts over the area without gluing to see the exact position you want the reindeer)
2. Head with antler - I used 2 Way Glue Pen on the antlers and SNAIL adhesive on the rest.
3. Song Book - Dimensional in the center and SNAIL on the side. It will upraise the book.

Using SNAIL adhesive, attach the snow drifts. They will overlap and also cover part of the body.

Stamp your greeting on the card with Real Red Classic Ink. I used Season's Greeting from the Snow Swirled stamp set.

If you would like a bit of sparkle, add glitter glue to the snow drifts along the torn edges. This card is guaranteed to make you smile and is easy to do even tho there are many steps.

Stampin' Up! has the best quality paper punches I have found. They are easy to punch with and come in so many shapes and sizes.
