I sure wish I had some cute owl stamps to use...(Joyce, this one is right up your alley!). Since I didn't have any owl stamps, I looked through the Silhouette store and found a very cute reindeer file I could use instead (Reindeer Face, Silhouette Store, ID #14808 by Sarah Bailey).
It was very easy to make a shaped card by inverting the shape and welding the top together slightly. I cut all the pieces from patterned papers...embossed the reindeer face with an embossing folder...added a lot of tea dye stain to the edges. I drew a Santa Hat freehand, cut it out and cut little holes for the antlers to peek out from under the hat. The cute sentiment is from PTI Santa Stationery. The last touch were those little jingle bells so everyone can tell just when this little guy has arrived.
I have already mailed out my cards for this year, so this little guy is going in the Christmas 2014 box. Wow...only 374 days until next Christmas! I better get going. Check out all the sweet animal Christmas cards at the Merry Monday Challenge Blog.
