Punch Art, Kards For Kids!

Hello, well I recently was came across this wonderful cause, run by Bela, and because it it very close to home I couldn't resist joining in! Bela is currently running a card drive to collect holiday/Christmas cards for the kids at Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital. So if you have some extra cards this might be a great destination!

My Hubby was a patient at TO Sick Kids Hospital when he was young, so it is a pleasure for me to send some Christmas Cheer!

The card above was inspired by the great hobby horses made with the punch stocking tag, but I changed it slightly to be a reindeer!

This is pretty simple, The body and ear are crumb cake, the antlers were made with the sizzix snowflakes #2 die, in early espresso. The eyes and nose were made with circles from the owl & cupcake punches. I love the SU glimmer paper so I used that for the nose & cuff. The twine is also from SU.

The card base is real red, with white embossed with the snow dots EF and the bottom is frostwood lodge dp. Then I finished it off with some taffeta ribbon, one of my favorite things!
Now this cutie is a total case from Artchick, when I saw him, I knew I had to make some, he's so adorable! I did everything the same, except...
I added arms with one of the hearts from the heart punch,
his hands were made with the large circle from the owl punch and I cut a notch for the finger. These ideas were taken from Lynn Pratt's people here!
The heart was punched from glimmer paper with a little EK punch
He's so cute, he's sure to bring a smile! The card is real red, with a layer of wild wasabi and then white embossed with the nothern flurry EF. The elf was made with blush blossom, wild wasabi, and wild wasabi dp.

Have a Great Day!
