 Hello everyone,

Back into Christmas mode, and sharing a job offer.............for reindeer.

Again with an easel, but a slight change around..this is how it started..

Flipped it on its side and added a panel on the back..

All closed up, just like a normal large card..6x8...ish!

Gathered another load of leftovers and a few new bits..

Then a lovely unusual grey card stock for the inside panels,
 I line all my panels whether you see them or not..

For my snowbanks I have this gorgeous embossing 3D folder. 

and embossed them....lovely.

I was very happy with these snowbanks.

And they led me to over-the-top beautiful snowflakes.

and each panel was allowed one each..

Time for trees, cut in black, dark green to lighter green..

and a huge group of Deer.

Onto the front again, and I added my moon, Christmas sentiment and a deer leaping across the front from Coutre Creations, had him for years, plus some trees darkest to lightest.

Inside, all the panels got a few trees each..the forest is thickening.

and even some tiny little deer playing way in the back there..

The bigger Deer were all there too just waiting!!

Then the sign went up..
"Santa hiring now
apply within"

So through the unusual shaped card they flocked in..

Male and female all applied..

Nearly a whole forest full arrived..

Looking down..

And who knows who got the job?

one last pic to see the shape..

So there we go, hope you enjoyed..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

I think I ought to just write 'ditto' on my comments, 'ditto' being 'stunning' as I keep seeming to repeat myself and I'd save some time typing. Truly though, another gorgeous, well designed card. So impressive!
