Reindeer Greetings

Hi and welcome to my blog. Have you gotten in the Christmas spirit yet? We had a surprise snow here in South Carolina over the weekend and it certainly put me in the Christmas spirit! We hardly ever get snow. We got about 3 inches. I want to show you a Christmas card I made. I am trying to do more shabby chic cards and I think this one qualifies.

I made the background by using a snowflake embossing folder and swiping a few colors of Distress inks over the raised areas. I stamped the deer (unknown) using Walnut Stain Oxide ink and cut it out with the Gina Marrie Stitched Circle die. The frame for the deer was made by using a Martha Stewart corner punch. I added some "greenery" at the top made from blue card stock using the Impression Obessesion Greenery die. The snowflake is also a die (unknown) and I added clear stickles glitter to it as you can see in the picture below. I cut a tag using a cuttlebug die and embossed the saying with white embossing powder. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a blessed Christmas season!
