SVG: Reindeer & Blog Hop--Day 1

Happy "World Card Making Day"
Welcome to the Card A Day Blog Christmas Blog Hop - Day 1!
If you're here from Cindy's blog, you're heading in the right direction...Two Cindy's in a row!  If you've come directly to my blog, check out the bottom of this post as there is a whole list of fabulous bloggers with wonderful cards to share.  Be sure to visit them when you're done here.



Today's card is has a vintage look.  The reindeer die cut is my newest freebie SVG file and you can find the link for it below.
Card Details:
*The base is beige cardstock that was distressed around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
*Layered over the base is a piece of Tim Holtz's distressed glassine paper.
*The three strips of paper were cut from Graphic 45's "Christmas Past" stack.  Corners rounded with a corner punch.
*Sentiment strip is punched out of cream cardstock with a Martha Stewart border punch and distressed with Vintage Photo DI.
*The sentiment stamp is from Creative Cafe's "Holiday Card" and is inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink.
*The reindeer was cut on the Cricut using Sure Cuts A Lot and my reindeer SVG file (offered below) using another piece of "Christmas Past" paper.  I also cut a shadow layer of glassine paper and then glued the pieces together and attached to the sentiment strip with foam dots.
If you can use SVG files, get the free reindeer file HERE.
If you don't use SVGs, substitute a similar diecut or punched shape.
