MCT 5 Days of Christmas: Reindeer Invitations

by Veronica

My Creative Time is wrapping up the 5 Days of Christmas today. If you haven't been following along on the MCT blog, check it out! Emma and the designers have created some fabulous Christmas projects for you to see this week!

Today I'm sharing with you our annual Christmas Eve Eve invitation. Each year, The Hubs and I get to celebrated Christmas for three full days beginning with two days before Christmas. On December 23rd, we host my side of the family in our home for dinner, presents and quality family time.



This year, I've used the super classy leaping reindeer die from Oh Deer as the focus of our invitations. The "believe" die from Boughs of Holly works perfectly beneath it. I also used a Stitched Rectangle Die and a circle die from Bunch of Fun Circles to keep the card simple, but interesting.

Thank You cards from Mara-mi
My card fronts are actually built on a pre-existing thank you card that I found for a STEAL from Target. These card/envelope sets sell for $10.99 online. I picked up three packs for less than $3 each. With 30 sets in the pack, that's less than $.10 per set! The cards are embossed in wood grain and the envelopes feature printed wood grain, too.

I originally purchased them to use as bases for my sister-in-law's upcoming baby shower thank you notes. Of course, I loved them so much myself that I made sure to pick up one extra box for me!

***5 Days of Christmas Giveaway***
Emma has had awesome giveaways all week and today is no different!
