Shaped Christmas Card

I must admit I don't think that I have ever made a shaped card like this before. They always seemed a bit fiddly and my cutting out is not that great, especially to cut two layers with the same pattern. Nikky has made it easy though with her designs, she really does think about us who are useless with scissors (it makes it alot quicker as well).

One thing that I did do and it's probably and old tip, but I sanded the edges and inked them, that seemed to cover any rough bits and I was more pleased with the finish of the card.

I used the Reindeer, holly and robin from the Sudae of Seasons CD from Polka Doodles, some backing paper from another of her CD's and a sentiment. He has got some sparkle to his antlers and the robins tail, but it doesn't really show up on the photo.

I have entered this card into the Polka Doodles weekly challenge - Shaped Christmas.
