The Most Famous Reindeer

Good morning to you all.  It's time for another card for the Christmas Card Club.  This time our theme is "Reindeer" and was chosen by Lorraine.   As you can see, I have chosen the most famous reindeer of all ... lol! I am a day early with my card  (unlike last time when I was about five days late!) but I have another DT card to post on Sunday.

My Card



Recipe
5" x 7"  card - cream pearlescent  card Crafter's Companion
die - magazine freebie
sentiment - computer generated
plaid card - a scrap from my snippets box

The light has been really bad to take a picture. The first picture didn't show the lovely bronze colour of the reindeer but the other makes the white card look blue although does give a better impression of the reindeer.  In the end I decided to show two images and crop the second one. The bronze paper is from one of the Paper Blox from Craftwork Cards which I have had about 15 years and just came across it the other day with hardly any papers used from it.  Absolutely gorgeous silvers, pewters, bronze and another colour which I cannot describe other than to say it is fabulous and I'm glad I came across this pad. 
I have also made some A6 cards using the same die cut and sentiment but haven't managed to photograph them yet.

Hope everybody is well.

Take care.

    The paper you have used to cut him out is superb, and looks so wonderful.

  12. Hi Christine
    Well, I think Prancer and Vixen are getting very jealous of Rudolf's notoriety lol!
    Fabulous card and yes, the lighting is getting a pain now. Was thinking of getting one of those light tent things.
    Best wishes.

  14. "The most famous reindeer of all!" - I admit it - you have me sing Rudolph The Red-nose Reindeer!
    Love your card!
