Mercy Meets Dasher

Mercy had another wonderful sketch this week and I celebrated a full day all to myself at home (kids are now in school full time) by stamping away. It was a delightful way to spend my day :D

In keeping with working through my Costco DP package, I found this wonderful paper. I also got my SU Dasher reindeer so it was a perfect time to make a Christmas card. Sage Shadow and some Cream Linen paper I had matched perfectly.

I embossed Rudolf in Gold, used the debossed side of the Snowflakes embossing folder as the mat on the second panel, punched out the snowflake and added a brad for the corner item. My reindeer was a bit lost in all that cream space so I added a corner tab and another gold brad to balance things off. The finishing touch was some yummy cream satin ribbon. I was delighted with how this turned out and think I will make a few more as Christmas cards for family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

What's In It?

Paper: Costco DP, Sage Shadow, Cream Linen
