Christmas Already

What fun I am having playing with the Layers of Colors stamp sets... this one is called Reindeer Waltz. The reindeer have a filigree look about them!
I love working with these gorgeous reindeer and have to be honest - they didn't need too much done with them, they are gorgeous in their own right.
I did make two, the first one being for Our Creative Corner Challenge. this week it is to make a Christmas card...the reindeer has been
embossed onto a circle, the edges sponged and layered on black CS, which I have just cut by hand - don't look too closely - then popped up on dimensionals. This was layered onto embossed silver foil, which is a recycled custard tart tray - kindly donated for my 'cause' by my DH - obviously I washed it first, although it really didn't need too much cleaning - the family saw that! LOL! Ribbon was added to the embossing. This was layered onto CS and attached to DP which has also been sponged around the edges. The snowflakes are from a RAK from Jocelyn (aka JoBear2 on SCS) and have been sponged and then had Distressed Stickles added and a silver pearl in the centre. Finishing off with a row of black pearls to two corners.

The second card is for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge which is about scoring, which you can see very clearly on this card - I don't have a ScorPal or anything like that but do have some garden wire which gives me this result - you have to be happy with that!!! I have added the snowflakes from Jocelyn (aka JoBear2) with the Distressed Stickles on them and the silver pearls which are from Pam (aka Pam 124) they are gorgeous and finish off the card nicely (in my opinion!)

So there you have them, 2 Christmas cards...both of the cards fit the Creative Card Crew Challenge which is also for Christmas in August...I have a lot more plans for these reindeer and you can be sure you will see them ALL here! There are plenty of ideas at Layers of Color so why not pop over there and check out their Design Team galleries.
