Folk Art Christmas Deer

Hello.  Gail here with a fun make using the quirky Reindeer Doll from Carmen's Verandah.  The end of the month is nigh and I wanted an addition to the christmas card stack.  I am slowly adding cards for the silly season, but I am sure once summer is over the glitter will be flying!  This was lovely and easy so maybe it's in contention for THE Christmas Card!!

Isn't that deer just so sweet!!  I stamped and embossed Reindeer Doll, coloured her with distress inks and fussy cut her.  I used Poppystamps Diamond Background die cut from green card and white glitter card and pieced them together.  I borrowed the star from Quilted Winged Angel and attached it with a piece of red thread.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Remember Altered Pages are featuring Lost Coast Stamps all this month so do hop over for masses of inspiration.
