Recycled Kraft Card Christmas Reindeer

These are easy to make and they need to be as I produce 400 - 500 Christmas cards every year. I do keep around 50 for myself and then the others go to local charities

They`re simply a recycled craft card

Stamped with a reindeer

I am terrible at stamping and have sold most of my stamps

The nose and holly are coloured simply with pearlidoodles

they give the nose / holly a 3D effect 

The only variation on the cards is the sentiment, I`ve put Happy Christmas on some, Rudolph the red nose reindeer on other and some have no sentiment at all

Very effective I think you`ll agree

This is another `British` theme for the Christmas Village

I can hear you saying Christmas, its July

But I make lots of craft things and have to start now, so that the Christmas Village will be how I want it

These 13 pieces of paper are going to be a lock and barge boat, it will take a while to put together as each sheet has to be glued to cardboard of different weights

Well the cardboard is on and now I`m waiting for it to dry 

I can see this proving to be quite a challenge all those small pieces
