Christmas Cards

Just a quick post tonight. I have been catching up with some DT projects for later in the week, in between trying to batch some more Christmas cards. So tonight I opted for a quick card using the gorgeous new Crafty Individuals stamp of the Reindeer.

I have been using a lot of browns and blues recently so I made myself choose a different colour. I thought the greens worked quite well. I used Versafine Spanish Moss and Archival Olive to stamp the background snowflakes. I recently bought this lovely nestie - Fleur-de-Lis Square. I just thought it was so elegant and framed my reindeer perfectly!! Well that's another 4 in my box....still a way to go though.
I have another tag to share with you on Friday. This time Brenda asked us to chose a technique used on one of Tim Holtz's Christmas tags. Where do you start...!!!! There are so many great ones to chose from. Eventually I decided on a tag from his 2009 collection, involving alcohol inks. That's all I can say. Be sure to check out the Stamp Man Challenge blog on Friday (12 noon) to see more.
