Be Merry Dasher for the Retro #rrcb186

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog Sketch Challenge #186.  I used the retired Wood Mount stamp sets called  'Dasher' & 'Warm Words' .  The Wintery 3D Embossing Folder and Gold Embellishments are current.

Please click on either my card or the #rrcb186 image to visit the blog challenge.

Assembly & Trix:

***Trix, play with texture instead of colours.  The 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 piece of Basic White cardstock embossed with the Wintery 3D Embossing Folder, #155433 & the scalloped circle from the Layering circle Dies #151770 coordinate together with the swirls on 'Dasher's antlers.  

***Trix, only use two colours and repeat them.  Gold Stampin' Emboss™ Powder, #155555, Gold & Vanilla Satin-Edged Ribbon, #159555 & Festive Pearls, #159963

  1. WOW!! What a gorgeous and elegant Christmas card, love everything about it, from the gold embossed Holiday Deer to that beautiful embossed snowflake panel, the gold ribbon and the gold sentiment finish your card perfectly.
    Thank you for sharing with us over at RETRO RUBBER. Stay healthy and safe.

    1. Maria - thank you so very much! What a lovely comment to read, thank you for visiting and providing inspirational challenges!

  2. Ah ha! Gorgeous combo, Lesley - I still have both these sets myself, lol - I loved all these little scripty sets that we could punch out with our oval punches! This is a gorgeous white-on-white take on our sketch, and the beautiful deer is even more elegant in gold! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

    1. Yes, I agree aren't those scripty words in that set awesome, (I forgot I was going to comment on that in my blog) Thank you for you kind words and for the awesome inspiration!

  3. STUNNING! Absolutely elegant, perfect use of the sketch and I love Christmas Cards in White and Gold. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT

    1. wow thx so much Claire for your lovely comment and enthusiasm. I love your challenges! :)

  4. So elegant and pretty! Funny, I was just thinking about Mr Dasher the other day....and that I should get him out, dust him off and get him inky, and here he is! Great way to add the embossed panel...and of course I love that little sentiment too! So happy you played with our sketch this week at Retro Rubber!

    1. thx so very much LeAnne, yes I can't part with 'Mr.Dasher' :) I hope to see a card you create with this stamp too. Thx for stopping by leaving your lovely compliment.


Thanks for taking the time to write a comment, you've made my day!
