Leaping Reindeer


I have been a little behind with posting my Christmas cards.  I did make quite a few this year, but time slipped away from me and I didn't get them posted as planned.  This card was created for my friend Veronica using the beautiful Penny Black leaping deer image.
 
On a piece of Shimmery White paper, cut from a Spellbinders Large Classic Square, I stamped the image in VersaMark and embossed it with gold embossing powder and a heat gun.  Believe was stamped in Blushing Bride and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I cut a piece of Brushed Gold paper using the Lacey Square #5 die and mounted everything to a white linen card.  A bow was made from 7/8" musical ribbon.  


Merry Christmas was stamped in VersaMark and also embossed in gold.  A few snowflakes were added in Blushing Bride with iridescent ice.  I went for the simple and elegant look. 


Thank you for stopping to visit me.  I hope 2013 brings you much joy and happiness!  Don't forget to enter my giveaway for a charming heart necklace.

What a lovely CAS card. I am always impressed by this stamp but I'm never quite sure how to use it as I think it looks best in a simple style and I do so struggle to be clean! Lovely work! Oh and thank you for following me, Donna. Happy New Year! Hugs, Lesley
