52CCT - Theme ....

....  Hello everyone!  It's time for our theme challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Louise has picked Rudolf/Reindeer.  Here's my card:

Yuletide Blessings - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Smoky Slate
Dies: Memory Box - Birch Trio, Deer Trio; Die-namics - Fishtail Flags Stax #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Smoky Slate; SU DP - Pink Pirouette; SU Glimmer Paper - Silver; Vellum; Gem


I've been wanting to use these Memory Box dies since I got them, but for some reason it's taken a while!!  I've gone for an elegant deer card - I really like this family group of deer.  For the colours I've taken the silver, white and pink theme from this week's Merry Monday - MM#113.  I made the card base from Smoky Slate and cut a couple of mat layers in pale pink and silver glitter.  On the white panel I randomly stamped snowflakes in a couple of shades of pink.  I die cut the birch trio in Smoky Slate and the deer in silver glitter.  I finished the front of the card with a sentiment stamped in dark pink on vellum and die cut with a fishtail flag die.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in pale pink, stamped some more snowflakes on the white panel and finished with a lovely Christmas verse.

We have some wonderful inspiration cards for you made by our Design Team and by our Guest Designer, Marie of NJ Stamping Queen.  Do stop by their blogs and leave a comment - we all like comments!!

I told you yesterday that Kathryn and I were going to the cinema, well we did and we decided to see How to Train Your Dragon 2.  It's a really super film with great animation and a super story.  We both came out of the cinema smiling and feeling good!  If you've got young children, or you're just young at heart, you'll love it!  That's all for now - looking forward to seeing your creations with a deer/Rudolf theme.

I have this Memory Box die too and was going to use it, glad I didn't as I doubt I could have made something as fab as this. Love those deer in silver glitter card, and the aspen tree background is perfect. Such a beautiful DT card

Deborah, this is gorgeous, I love the deer against the birch trees and the colours are so very pretty - especially with the sparkly silver!

A wonderful inside too, I think the verse inside is so special, what a lovely sentiment!

Yowsa Deborah -this is pure glittery fabulousness! I so want that tree die. I saw you got one of the top picks at Merry Monday. Congrats on this awesome card. Hugs D

It's a different color combo for a wintry card, but it really looks great with all the glitter! I really like the vellum sentiment tag, too - it stands out, but it doesn't distract from the card's elegance.
