Christmas in July JustRite Style!


Happy Monday, everyone! It's JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream, and we're celebrating Christmas in July! The new Christmas and winter stamps are fun and so versatile -- you can find them HERE! I used an image from the Holiday Cheer 1 3/16" Borders & Centers Set for my project. I thought it would be fun to make a tag for a bag of Reindeer Food. This tag measures approximately 5.5" x 3".

My girls love to make Reindeer Food at Christmas time, and we are always sure to sprinkle it on the lawn Christmas Eve! It's easy to make -- just mix oats, granulated sugar, and colored sugar crystals. The glittery crystals will attract the reindeer, and they will stop to eat the oats! :)

The paper is from the Eskimo Kisses 6x6 pad by BasicGrey. I punched out a snowflake from the paper and covered it with Polar White Flower Soft to make a wintery embellishment. I colored the reindeer with Copics, and I sponged the edges of the paper and cardstock with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Stop by the Stamper's Dream Blog this week for more Christmas in July fun! You won't be disappointed! :)

Thank you so much for visiting today -- I'm so glad you stopped by!

Have a great day!
Christina

This is awesome! We just started making these reindeer food packets last year and it's so fun. I love giving them out to my niece's on Christmas Eve....and I may need to CASE your bag. It's much cuter than the ones I did last year.
