 Hello everyone,

Up to Christmas card # 23, getting to the end, or are we..??

This time I went a little masculine sort of, for a friend of mine..

When I bought the new containers I accidently bought a 12x12 pad
The papers are just gorgeous, foiled ones, plaids, gold and silver sheets,
 I love it and HAD to have it..

The deer heads die looks fabulous when cut out and you can have any colour behind,
 I went with gold, as my papers were deep green with gold deer..

After die cutting a load of leaves in green and white,
I made my clusters.

The made a wreath, now that was fun..

Then added red berries...all these dies are from different sets and just put together..
But, something was missing, the deer looked a tad flat and need a lift..

So I die cut them again in white..

and inlaid some of the pieces..
I think it was the lift they needed..

added a bow and had to use tweezers to hold tweezers as they couldn't reach..

A few white enamel dots and it was ready..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow..

A super card Chrissy, definitely has a masculine feel. the papers and colours are beautiful- how lucky you had that 'accident'! It's a great design, fab wreath, you were right to add the white touches to the deer.
