Glittered Reindeer how wonderful!!!

I really love the holidays and one of the things I love most about them is that you get the opportunity to use glitter and bling everywhere and that is something I love to do.  So today I was cleaning my craft room and discovered an old reindeer punch I have not used in ages.  I got to thinking about the Oh Deer paper packet and what I could do with that punch.  Well I had a scrap of silver glitter paper and a piece of gold glitter paper from another project laying on the corner of my work table and that was all it took.  Here is what I came up with...

While blue is not a traditional Christmas color I am really loving this Sea Glass cardstock and the Oh Deer paper packet that use it so beautifully.  For this card I made the base using the Sea Glass cardstock and I just cut it to 4 1/4 x 11" and scored it in half and folded it to make an A2 card base that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2".  I cut a piece of the Oh Deer paper to 4 x 5 1/4, added a strip of gold glitter paper that is 1 1/2 x 4" and a strip of Sea Glass that is 1 x 4" and is stamped with Merry Christmas from the Merry Christmas stamp set using Memento ink.  Finally, I punched out a reindeer from the silver glitter paper and used 3-D foam tape to give it dimension.  So simple yet it looks very elegant.  

Below is a list of the supplies I used for this project.  As always most of them can be purchased from my OBA at or by clicking the shopping cart at the top of this blog.  Happy Crafting!!!!
