Christmas Kickstart in January

 You would think one simple item like a deer would be easy, but no, I couldn't think of something to make.  It wasn't until I was working on another card with the snowflakes and a new reindeer die that I put it all together.  This particular card is for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge.  

This snowflake die makes such a lovely, delicate image.  I wanted some glitter and chose some Glittered Cardstock that I've had for ages.  This bronze glittery color gives a luxurious feel to the greeting and stylized reindeer.   Crisp and neat was the style I was going for and easily achieved for this card.  The notecard rim is brushed with clear Wink of Stella, however, it shows up smudged in the photo because the card is loaded with it.  

One more card done for the holidays.  

Challenge #46 - Such a Deer!

I'm entering the Christmas Kickstart Challenge and hope you too begin your Xmas cards in January!
