Just Buggin' Challenge #11- A cute little card!

I made cute little card for the Just Buggin' Challenge Blog. I was just made a member of their Design Team and although this project isn't a DT challenge,I thought I'd jump right in with this little card.

If you are a Cricut fan you can jump right in as well. The challenge was to use an animal die cut and if you don't have one you can create your own!

I used this cute little reindeer head from Doodlecharms. I also gave him a Santa hat from Doodlecharms. For some 3-D effects I gave him a bright shiny Stickles nose and a fluffy white pom pom on his hat. For a touch more whimsy I gave him oversized oogly googly eyes.

The circles and scallop circle are all from Accent Essentials. I added a little Basic Grey paper and some ribbon and a hand cut tiny "for you" tag and the front is all ready to go!

To give this darling little guy a big sense of purpose I added a little strip of the same Basic Grey on the inside to form a pocket to hold a gift card, or good ol' cash! To make the pocket I just glued the paper strip on 3 sides and slipped the card in. To gussy up the pocket a touch I added a scalloped strip of paper!

I think I am going to give this cutie to my sister-in-laws new boyfriend for Christmas, well not with a blank CVS card! This little guy is sure to make anyone smile!
