Mod Monochrome Holidays
It's been a crazy-busy week; we had guests in town, which meant lots of eating out and lots of shopping (for the ladies, that is). I did, however, squeeze in time to make this super-quick card using my favorite Slice design card, Fa La La. I cut the reindeer head at 3 1/2", then lightly sponged the edges with ink for a little contrast. I added a rhinestone nose, and attached the head to the cardfront with foam tape. You could whip up a whole set of these in a rainbow of colors in no time flat!
Edited to add: I forgot to mention that to get the cleanest looking cut possible, I actually flipped my cardstock over and cut the "backside" - so in this case, the smoother side was facing up on my glass mat as I cut. After the image was cut, I peeled it off the glass mat, flipped it over, and adhered it so that the textured side was facing out. It helps hide some of the little imperfections that occur in corners as the blade lifts and lowers. Hope that makes sense!
