We're joining the ladies at craftycardmakers for their monthly challenge sponsored by Woodware this week & their theme is paper piecing (not to be confused with paper piercing which is a different animal!)
I've chosen Patch Reindeer from Francoise Read as this is just begging to be pieced. I've used papers from the Craft Works paper pad which has some lovely vintage papers to chose from. Simply select 3 papers which will work well together & stamp the reindeer onto each also onto a plain piece of card to act as the base to assemble the cut pieces. Now cut the pieces & stick them to the base. When complete cut out the whole reindeer & highlight the heart & holly with a Sakura pen.
The dark red A5 card blank has been randomly stamped with snowflakes & a sentiment & Brilliance Starlite Silver from the stamp set & given some sparkle with silver Stickles. I've used a panel from the paper pad at the left hand edge, stamped one of the sentiments from the set & wound some Fancy Twine & Jingle Bells around it  before attaching to the card. 
Rudolph himself has been mounted onto a "Wobbler" which really gives a fun effect. To finish I've stamped the sentiment onto a tag shape & cut some of the holly sprigs from the paper pad  to add to the corners of the card.
