LOC Ornamental Reindeer

I have enjoyed making this Christmas Ornament card with the Layers of Color  set Reindeer Waltz



I used a Circle Cutter to cut the CS for both the ornament and the inside image of the reindeer. DP was also cut with the cutter and adhered to the large circle, with the embossed half being added to the bottom.  Trim was added across the join and a punched top was added ,with an eyelet and gold cord, so it could either be stood up as a card or hung as an ornament.

I embossed the reindeer with black Embossing Powder and sponged around the edges with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink and popped it up on dimensionals.


 
The circle are from the Fleur Heart set, coloured it with chalks and then used a small circle punch and made large faux brads with it.  I added Kaiser Half Bling and popped the faux brads up on dimensionals as well.

I love the vintage feel that has happened here and will definitely make some more of these.  The reindeer is perfect for making a quick project as the filagree look of it is enough on it's own without having to do much more - you have to love that!  If you haven't seen them already you can check out the gorgeous sets from Layers of Color here.

I have used the rich tones of autumn for inspiration for this card, keeping it monochromatic and using many tones of brown from golden to rustic this qualifies this card for two challenges:
The Pink Elephant and the Cuttlebug Spot

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments, you make my day and I appreciate you taking the time - you are so very encouraging!  I love seeing that you have been.  God bless you!
