Christmas Wishes

Meet today's card.
This one is more on the masculine side.

I had a piece of woodgrain paper leftover that I had made, tutorial HERE, and die-cut it into an oval shape using a Spellbinders die.  I die-cut the deer head twice and glued the pieces together for stability and added it over the woodgrain bkg.  I cut the leaves, also from the deer set, in red and glued it below the head.
I just picked up this new stamp from SSS called the Christmas Sweater and used it for my background.  I used my Misti to get the perfect stamped impression.
Lastly, I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment and pop dotted the deer head piece with pop dots.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This Christmas Sweater embossed background is so pretty and perfect with the stag's head and over a lovely piece of your woodgrain too and with a gorgeous pop of red. x

Love that new Christmas sweater stamp - I must investigate that. Your woodgrain piece is a perfect background for the reindeer, and the red branches give so much life to the card.
