Fuzzy ATC

And finally, this is my Fuzzy ATC.  In another swap, the theme this month was 'fuzzy'.  So we had to do something fuzzy.  Seems easy enough until you have to come up with something.  This is my take on a brown fuzzy reindeer under a tree.  NO?  Ok, this is what I ended up doing after a few other great ideas rolled around in my head.  Doesn't everyone do that?

I used plain white cardstock for this ATC, although I think I always use white cardstock, so nothing surprising here.  I used one of the oldies, but goodies, Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge.  I have always really loved this particular stocking from that cart.  I cut the card and border from George and the stocking from Christmas Cheer.  I ran the border through my Xyron and rubbed Sour Apple Green Fun Flock on it.  The stocking was cut as a whole piece, then I cut just the top of the stocking out by themselves. The toe was cut with my Crop-A-Dile instead of the Cricut. I ran the stocking through the Xyron and stuck the top & toe on and then rubbed the rest of the stocking with Snow Cone Blue Fun Flock.  After that I cut just the top of the stocking out on my Cricut, Xyron'd and rubbed it with Pixie Pink Fun Flock, ran it through the Xyron on the other side and stuck it on the top of the stocking.  I cut another set of toes and did the same process for the toes at the tops. A lot of flocking, but they are fuzzy.

I used my Quikutz Polka Dots embossing folder on the background. they put the whole thing together.  Yikes, it sounds harder than it was.  Anyway,  I thought they were kind of a cheerful looking and very fuzzy.

I don't think these have been posted on PaperockScissors blog yet, so don't tell.
