TTTC98 Silver Deer

Hi stampers!  Here with another post today---a Tic Tac Toe challenge!  Here's our board: 

This board leaves a lot of room for interpretation, and since I saw that Christmas Card Throwdown had a metallic paper challenge, 

I thought I'd do another Christmas card!  My Detailed Deer dies have not seen the light of day for months, so I thought I'd feature this beautiful leaping deer from the set:

I actually used all the squares in the grid, how about that!  This was really a simple card to create; I diecut the deer from Silver foil and mounted it on some red plaid DSP.  I did add a mat of Silver foil as well (if you cut out the inside portion of the mat, which doesn't show under the plaid paper, you can save that piece for another use!) and mounted it on a square card base.

The peace sentiment was heat embossed in silver and diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die, through which I added some narrow silver ribbon:

And I stamped some additional silver snowflakes among my Real Red sentiment on the inside!  

I love how this turned out and I'll put it in my stash of Christmas cards for December!  Now, what will you create with our Tic-Tac-Toe grid?  Share it at the challenge blog, can't wait to see what you create!

That shimmery deer is so festive! This is incredible, LeAnne. I like the way the ribbon is threaded through the sentiment tag, great idea!

Look at you using all the boxes - great going and beautiful. I love your thrifty suggestion on the silver layer - I've done that with some specialty paper too.

Love this card too LeAnne! The leaping silver stag looks wonderful against that red plaid background. Vicky x
