Christmas animals

Well I have finally got round to blogging my cards for the BubblyFunk 25th club for February. The theme this month was 'animals' and as a lot of my Christmas cards have animals on then I decided to make 2 cards this month.
The first was cut using my new big shot die which cuts a scalloped card blank. I also managed to cut the scalloped mat by rotating the paper in the die to make the scalloped edge all the way round.
The holly leaves and bird (which was supposed to be a Robin but looks a bit like a dove- I think it's the curved wing that needs changing) were drawn free-hand and edged with pen lines as were the edges of the scallop.

The second card was made using a chipboard reindeer bought from hobbycraft. I inked the reindeer using metallic pens and then covered it all with glossy accents. the white highlights were added to the reindeer using gel pens.

I am determined to do the March challenge in pelnty of time!!!
