Allsorts challenge week 387 - Lets make a start on Christmas

Good Morning all and welcome to another challenge over at Allsorts.
Tracy Mouse has picked the theme of - Lets make a start on Christmas!


Our sponsor for this week is Lets Create.

Here is my card.

Creative Expressions Die - Reindeer
Papermania Kraft card.
Hobby House backing papers
White card and sentiment Craftwork cards, sentiment cut using a SU punch and then punched again in the kraft card and cut in half to just back the end of the sentiment.
Metal gem for nose and a blue gem for the eye.
I cut the centre image in white card then again in the kraft card then just cut the deer out of the kraft card and glued over the white image.

I have to say that this was a fabulous die to work with and would go as far to say that it is the best die I have ever bought for cutting and all the bits dropping out. Now having said that it will probably start to play up. 

Thanks for popping by and do pop along to the challenge blog to see the other DT's fabulous creations.

A whimsical shape for this die Rudolph - looks as though he's all dressed up for pulling the sleigh. Love the tan of his coat against the beige and white, and those are gorgeous frames too. Adding the bling colors sparked Mr. Rudy up just tremendously. TFS & Hugs (and glad that the die cut nicely for you!)
