Vintage Reindeer

Good morning. It seems winter is finally here- I've just come back from the school run and, for the first time this term, we had to wrap up warm. My boys have new Star Wars hats and gloves, so were happy to wear them.

This colder weather makes me feel more Christmassy but also reminds me that I still have lots of cards to make. This little card with its vintage feel is a good template for the quick cards I need to make now- simple yet still stylish.

The papers are Trimcraft First Edition Christmas Wishes- I love this red and brown combination. The reindeer and sentiment stamps are from the Dovecraft Glad Tidings Clear Sentiment stamps pack. I've stamped the deer and sentiment using Vintage Photo distress ink onto Creative Expressions Milk card. I've used the distress ink on the edges of all layers to achieve a vintage look. The twine and pearls are also from the Glad Tidings range.

I would like to enter this card for the Fantasy Stampers Traditional Christmas Challenge.

Thanks for visiting today and for all your lovely comments. Cathy x
