The Swift Reindeer - boldly prancing through the Snowflake Ring - creates a quick card for everyone on your list.  Add a glittery red scarf, sequins and a greeting from the Party Time Open Studio Stamp Set for a simple, classic design that's easy to mass-produce.  Hope you're enjoying your weekend - Jean Okimoto here with another holiday idea that just might help keep you a bit cooler during the heat wave.

Attach dark kraft cardstock to adhesive label paper (or a sticker sheet) and diecut Swift Reindeer - you don't need to cut the entire scarf because it'll be replaced by the bright, flowing red glittered scarf.  The paper backing adds a bit of dimension without any extra effort.  My favorite kind of design! 

Trim the kraft scarf just a bit beyond his neck.  Cut the scarf portion again from glittered foam and leave it in the die.  Attach a strip of Scor-Tape to the diecut and run it through the machine again to cut through the tape.  That's usually easier than trying to cut through the foam, the tape and the tape liner all at once.  Snip the wide end into a shallow "v."

Cut Snowflake Ring from smooth natural cardstock.  

Attach everything to a side-folded A-2 card of textured natural cardstock.  

Stamp the greeting on smooth natural cardstock with Imagine Crafts Memento Luxe Love Letter.  Emboss it with detail clear powder.  Trim it with the smallest Pinpoint Rectangle Layer.  Attach it with foam dots.  Add gold sequins.
