My card this week is for my future Great Niece. She is due in August, but ever since I found out my nephew and niece were expecting, I have baby on the brain. LOL! I am sure I will make a few more for her before Christmas arrives. I used the CCR to create the card and if you would like the file, I will add it to the bottom of this post. I started by cutting the baby from New Arrival. I cut the top layer twice so that I could add some dimension to it like our friend Nadia taught us back on NSD. I also cut a Santa Hat from Paper Doll Dress Up and sized it to fit the baby's head using the CCR. I colored the baby using my copics and put her together using pop dots. I cut the Santa hat twice, once in SEI Red Velvet paper and once in white cardstock. I cut the red pom pom and rim off, then attached the red to the white hat. I added white Doodle Bug Flock to the rim and I used Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter on the pom-pom.
I did the same thing with the reindeer from Paper Doll Dress Up. I cut the hooves from the white reindeer and colored them with copics. I didn't like them, so I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to them and added Martha Stewart glitter. I also put a dab of Glossy Accents on the reindeer's nose and added some glitter to that as well. I used SEI Brown Velvet paper to cut the reindeer out, so to add some accents to it, I needed to use acrylic paints. I used pink for the ears, and white for the tail and antlers.
I cut three sleds from Paper Doll Dress Up. One in green, one in white and one where I hid contours in kraft paper. This gave me a chance to add layers where there weren't any on the original cuts. I cut the center from the white sled and used Glossy Accents to add Martha Stewart Glitter to it. Then I added Martha Stewart Glitter to the bottom of the sled. I popped that up on the base. Before I did that, I glued my baby, some presents and a Christmas Tree down on the sled's base. The presents are from Birthday Bash and the tree is from Paper Doll Dress Up.
Above is a close up of the sled. The little silver dots are from my stash. I have no idea where they came from. LOL! I hand cut a present for the baby to hold and popped it up. I folded one of the baby's hands around it to make it look like the baby was holding it.
For the base of the card, I cut Baby's 1st Christmas using Something To Remember.

I am entering my card in the 3D Challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks.
