CHRISTMAS REINDEER






I love Reindeer at Christmas - whether its on cards or decorations.  Last week I spent some time with a close friend and fellow crafter at her house - well when I tell you her amount of stash is like going into a craft shop you will understand that I was like a child in a sweet shop.  I couldn't actually focus on making a decision of what to make as there was so much to choose from!!!

I did however find this gorgeous die cut of the reindeer and the trees.  Sadly I don't know what make it is.  I kept it simple with just backing it on to some Navy card stock and sparkled up the base with snow glitter.  The sentiment is embossed in silver and fits this card perfectly.

I'm including this in the Paper Players challenge this week which is a Tic Tac Toe


 



 I've gone for the Tree, Christmas, Silver/Gold option.  I love these Tic Tac Toe challenges and this is a great one to join in with.  

I'm also adding this to The Holly and Ivy Christmas challenge which is Anything Goes 

Over at CAS Colours and Sketches they have a double whammy of a sketch and colour challenge.  I don't have the exact colours they mention but I've used similar SU ones.





This card also features the reindeer from the Heart's Come Home stamp set - the Believe stamp is an old one I've had for a long time.


I've used Soft Suede as the cardstock - although it looks grey in this picture.  The papers are from Daisy Delight DSP and  Be Merry DSP with some gold thread tied around the middle.  A basic rhinestone gives the card a bit of sparkle.

The die cut IS amazing! I like the simple colour combination with the extra zing from the snow and the metallic letters. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players.
