reindeer games card by lauren bergold

how ♥totally adorable♥ are the echo park "everybody loves christmas" stickers that come in the november pixie dust kit?! ok, i have answered my own question there, haven't i?! of all the cuties on the whole awesome 12x12 sheet, i think rudy reindeer miiiiiiiight just be my favorite! so i thought he should have a whole christmas card to himself:

to make a home for rudy, i punched a 3" circle of patterned paper which i backed with increasingly larger cardstock circles cut with decorative scissors, and with my own wonky hand-drawn scallops. i stitched around with white embroidery floss before adding the stickers and text. the painted snowflake background is stenciled using the negative shape from several punches... (there is a quick mini-tutorial on my personal blog explaining this) ...which i outlined using regular ballpoint pen. i made a decorative border out of paper scraps before machine-stitching around the whole card for a finishing touch!

and now can somebody please direct rudy and myself to those reindeer games? thanks! :)
