DYSU Challenge #50 WINTER!

 Welcome back for a new challenge here at Do You Stack Up?!
As the chilly weather moves in, we want you to show us your
Winter projects!

I chose to go with a decorated jar to hold candy canes...seems everyone enjoys an occasional sweet treat around the holidays!
With the adorable image, "Reindeer Rides"  from Inky Impressions, it was so easy!
Here's "Rudolf, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" for the
challenge at "Scrap It With A song" (a Christmas carol).
I didn't want to loose the image by wrapping it tight around the jar, and didn't have a larger jar, so I made little "wings" with tri-folded cardstock, and attached them to the backside of the cut out image.  I may transfer this whole image to a different jar or box later. But for now, the candy canes show through the window and look so yummy!

  I added homemade "flower fluff" to his antlers and to the ones on the building.  And of course, he had to have a shiny, red, blingy nose!

And wanting to make it more vintage, I inked the edge of the image with Distress Ink.  It still needed an old-timey look, so I glued some DCWV holiday paper added to the lid, along with the traditional red bow!

The tickets are Tim Holtz with an Inkadinkado Christmas sentiment stamp.

Check out the rest of the team's goodies, and join in the fun this week at
