Reindeer Greetings

The more I do it, the more I like it... Clean and Simple that is!
A card couldn't be much simpler than this... One image and one sentiment that's it. Both are from Penny Black and both have been heat embossed in gold.
I like how the sweep of the 'l' in the sentiment echoes the shape of the reindeer's front legs. This lovely stamp was one of my acquisitions from the NEC recently.
It's my DT card for My Time to Craft  this week where the challenge is Reindeer Greetings.
It's great that the snow has disappeared, it's lovely to look at but causes such problems. Some friends had a car crash into their garage wall while they were in bed in the room above. It has had to be propped up and needs to be repaired very soon., They were lucky that the whole building didn't collapse. Some other neighbours around the corner have had their front garden wall smashed down by another car out of control on the slippery roads. My neighbour opposite, (the one on the right of the two houses on my snowy day picture a few posts back) lost traction on his drive and his new BMW slid along his fence leaving a long scratch down the side of the car.
Penny Black - Stamp on any colour but white
One Layer Wednesday - What first inspired you in stamping... Heat embossing! What magic!

  3. Fabulous one layer card Chrissie. Have just posted my oversea's xmas cards and SO glad I kept them one layer. 97p!!!! for one small 4 x 4 card. Outrageous.

  4. this is breathtakingly stunning Chrissie. Without a doubt, one of my favourite cards ever. Absolutely gorgeous.

    Not good about those crashes - poor people. As long as no one got hurt - thats the main thing. My BMW is sat on the drive and I intend to drive nowhere in it. We still have all the snow - none of it has disappeared, we've had temperatures of about -16 at the coldest which was this morning. Its currently about -10? Its a bit foggy too - that frozen fog.... its cold up north Chrissie!!!!

  8. Wow, this is just gorgeous! Love the gold on the dark cardstock. So classy!

  9. Gold embossing powder makes such an elegant, classy card. Nice choice of stamps -- they look great embossed. Mmm. I'm not crazy about the snow either -- unless I can stay inside and just look at it. Driving in snow and ice is just too scary for me. Luckily, it doesn't snow very often where we live. :)

  10. Simply stunning and very elegant xx
