It's All About The Reindeer!

by Joanne James17. December 2015 08:05

I've had a few blog-free days this week - so much going on with the end of the school term and Christmas preparations, blogging has had to take a bit of a back seat - however today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary so I'm back with it and this week we have a great colour combination for you:


My card this week is all about the reindeer - take a look:


I decided to make a feature of the reindeer antler paper and vellum from the Winter Wonderland designer series paper, with a little gold glimmer paper, a few gold sequins, corded trim and one of my favourite reindeer paper clips to finish off my little layered tag. A little bit of layering but still easy enough to make for those last minute Christmas cards and a great way to use up that rather tricky heavily patterned paper.

Do visit the other Design Team members to see what they did with this week's colours; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too! Due to the Christmas festivities, this challenge will run for two weeks instead of one, so lots of time for to squeeze in an entry!

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

  • Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper

I just love the antler paper from this stack but have been a bit perplexed on how to use it. You've done a wonderful job showcasing it this week! Merry Christmas to you, Joanne!

Love how you used the antlers!  I have been confused by them since I saw them in the Wonderland stamp set, but I really like how you have done this card.  Might have to figure a way to make a card for my brother using them.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Joanne!  Love how you have carried the theme on the different elements of this card - also love how the minimal touches of gold stand out so beautifully!
