Elegant Prancing Reindeer

A while ago I did one of these "Funky Fold" cards and just knew that I would want to do a Christmas one. Black, White, and Gold is one of my favorite color combination. So I have come up with this little number.


These pretty gold leaves come from Micheal's in there Christmas Floral Department. I used the Branch punch from Martha Stewart to trail in between the leaves. The Reindeer is gold embossed and is a Inkadinkadoo stamp. Spellbinders Large Oval Scalloped Nestibilities and the Fleur D Lis Pendant were used. The corners are a Cuttlebug die set. There is a ribbon bow, some rhinestones, stickles, and a couple Martha Stewart frond punches round out this creation.

Here is the card again with the envelope I made. I had some extra pieces so I worked them into my envelope design. Thank you so much for dropping by to view my crafty wanderings. I hope you have been inspired!

Holy moly! What draws me to this is the color scheme, the look of scrollwork, and the black-tie feel to it. It's wonderful!
