Wild Rose Studio ' Reindeer'

The countdown is ON!! There are only 73 days left to Christmas, so taking away the postal times that leaves less than 50 days to get your act together and get those cards written and in the mailbox! Time to get a wiggle on folks! ;-)

Our host for the next fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge is the lovely Sue and she has chosen the theme 

'U' for 'Under The Pile'
ie, use a product that is at least one year old 

I wanted to use a brand new Wild Rose Studio 'Reindeer Die' that arrived over the weekend, well you always want to use your new stuff too don't you, so I made a couple of cards and paired them with older dies that I have had in my stash at least a year.

I inked up a background using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks and then used a Falling Stars Stencil, White Embossing Paste and a sprinkling of glitter to create the sky.

I wanted the keep the ground fairly plain so I stuck with plain white die cuts so that the beauty of the Reindeer would be the main focus.

For the landscape card above I used a WRS Cottage Die and for the portrait card below I used a Tree Border Die, that I think was from My Favorite Things but it may have been discontinued. 

Thanks for looking! :-)

Both really lovely cards Lols, The colours you have used on the reindeer look fantastic espcially against the background.
