A Paper Pumpkin Alternative for #FMS564

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Cécile's sketch over @ Freshly Made Sketches #564 & the Reindeer from the November Paper Pumpkin Kit.   Please click the hyperlink to visit the #FMS564 blog post and enjoy the beautiful interpretations of Cécile's sketch.

I really love this reindeer stamp, it stamps beautifully clear, there's words, dots and the solid image all on one photopolymer stamp, the image is sharp and clean! 


***  The Trix ***

*  Choose a subtle embossing folder to keep the card clean & simple as per the sketch.  I chose to add a slight bit of texture with a retired embossing folder.  I think keeping the cardstock layer and the card base the same Basic White, while adding a bit of texture, helps gives dimension without adding visual clutter.

*  The snowflakes are from a retired fave, Snowfall Thinlits Dies, I chose this die set because I wanted three different sized snowflakes, initially I was going to use the Chic Dies #158815.  ***Trix, dab a bit of glue in the centre of the snowflake only, allow to dry slightly before adhering to the card, then flick up the edge of the snowflakes.
