Reindeer Recipe

It's my third week hosting the challenges for November at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and this time I've chosen a recipe for a card.

As you can see I've been kind to myself(!) and asked for a one-layer card. Here's mine

The hint of colour is Wisteria Wonder, can you see that Dasher is heat embossed in gold? I've made this card for my Dutch family, and I used a torn mask over the sentiment to give the impression of a layer, which isn't really there!  The bling is on Dasher's antlers and matches the colour. Once I had the idea it was a very quick card to make - might make some more for other family members! 
Check out the variety of cards this recipe produces over at the challenge blog!


  1. Such a beautifully elegant card! I do like Dasher with his blinged up antlers!! The soft shade of lavender is really pretty and the faux layer works brilliantly.

    BTW - love this challenge!

  2. Totally fabulous!!! LOVE the way you've masked out around the sentiment and I LOVE the deer with the bling! HUGS and have a great week! :) Mynn xx

  3. I like how Dasher overlaps the area you masked off for the sentiment. The hint of bling is subtle, but pretty.

  4. That is it, just a hint of color and a little bling! Great!!

  5. Very cute, a lovely one layer!

  6. Dasher is one of my favorite stamps Louise and I love how you've used him to create this fabulous card. Thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone this week with your great challenge. Wisteria Wonder is my favorite purple. Hugs D

  7. I love your masking technique! So clever! It really makes for a gorgeous card!
