Getting diverted...

Well the plumbers are here so I thought I would spend the time in my craft room...
I started with one idea in my mind and got diverted into making this Christmas card!

I was looking through my embossing folders and started embossing lots of backgrounds - this reindeer one is a cArt-Us one embossed on a 'chocolate' piece of cardstock from my scraps.

I wanted the embossed piece to be the main part of the card so I just matted and layered it on a red card blank, followed by vanilla hand-made paper, followed by craft cardstock - all from my scraps. I added the ribbon and bells embellishment before the top two layers.

Back at my Big Shot again, I die cut a Sissix reindeer and added it, with a wobbly eye...

I am linking this to

(red, vanilla, chocolate and craft)

(I think this card has a bare minimum of embellishments)


(Anything goes)

Happy Crafting!
