Scandinavian Christmas


Hi peeps!  Brrrr....it's really, really cold here today!  Staying inside as much as I can!  I made this card for our pastor and his wife; she is of Scandinavian descent and loves Christmas things in red and white, so I made this for their Christmas card:


I embossed the white panel with a Tim Holtz EF called Deer Knit, and used the same EF to emboss just a section of it in Real Red, then layered and adhered them together.  The wreath (retired SU Northern Hearts) was stamped in Real Red, mounted on a Stitched Rectangle die (Lil'Inkers) and since the top panel was a little short, I added a scallop of Dazzling Diamonds at the bottom, although the shimmer doesn't really show here!  My final touch was some Cherry Cobbler ribbon and some pearls:





The sentiment is from Verve (Joyous Noel).  I think this is very clean and crisp!!  Thanks for popping in today!

Last Friday, Cassidy's Advent Calendar gift was a little stuffed reindeer:


Since it was Uncle Raymond's birthday (my brother), Mommy thought the reindeer should be named after him, Raymond the Reindeer, but Cassidy nixed that for "Frosty"!!


I imagine my brother would be relieved!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
