A Golden Reindeer

I have another card to share today that I made for two challenges.  I embossed the background with the Sizzix Rays embossing folder - I thought it looked like a snowstorm behind my tree branch and ornament!  I die cut and stamped the pine bough and hung my pretty die cut and gold embossed reindeer ornament off of the bough with a piece of glitter eyelash yarn.  Both the bough and reindeer are up on foam dots.

Here's a close up of the sweet reindeer -isn't the floral pattern of the stamping pretty?!  I gold embossed it on gold card stock.




This is my second entry for the Merry Monday Challenge - (see yesterday's post)   to use an ornament on your card



My design is this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics sketch - although I didn't use a sentiment on the outside of my card.

Stamps:  Festive Foliage and Folk Art Christmas Additions - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  white - PTI, gold - Michaels
Ink:  Versamark, Ranger Distress Evergreen Bough and Frayed Burlap
Accessories:  gold embossing powder, heat gun, Rays embossing folder - Sizzix, foam dots, glitter eyelash yarn - Martha Stewart, reindeer die from Folk Art Christmas Dies Waltzingmouse, pine bough from Pinecones die set - Waltzingmouse.
