ALAS, my last Christmas card. What a relief! I wasn't too happy with some of the cards I made this year, but this card really resonated with me as I LOVE the K&C b/g reindeer dp, which I paired with my MS reindeer border punch and a reindeer ef. I mean how much more "reindeer" can it get than that. I was also relieved that I finally got a good photo that shows the ef and the textured cardstock. At least, I can see it on my computer.
But, this isn't really about me, it's about OUR NEW QUEEN PAM, not to be mistaken by our OLD QUEEN PAM which was me some time back; of course, old meaning previously crowned and not OLD in age!!!!
I had some cute little reindeer I was going to use; but, then I remembered about that dp I loved, so I changed it to more of a vintage card.
I used the items I mentioned above, but I also added 2 buttons with thread bows, a diecut sentiment with 2 little gold bells on each side of it and I popped up the row of reindeer on dimensionals for a really cool look.
I decorated the inside with some dp and a chain of reindeer also.
That's about it. ENJOY your reign Pam! It goes by quickly and at the end you get your crown ripped off your head; but, oh well - the price for being royalty.

Oh, Pam, this is so pretty done all in reindeer! And your inside looks almost as nice as your front. Sweet little reindeer here and dp too; I love the lil bells, and the embossing shows up nicely! You wanted to know how much more reindeer can it get than that? Well, you could have added a reindeer charm~Hugs

There is that fantastic reindeer border punch again! Paired perfectly with the dp and that embossing folder! Congrats on finishing your christmas cards. Life didn't let me do that this year. It's ...I am ashamed to say..Hallmark to the rescue.

Oh this is wonderful. The first thing I noticed were those pretty popped up reindeer on this card and then the paper. That paper is really gorgeous. I think I got that myself on an incredible sale at M's. I haven't seen that ef before and think it is just perfect for this card. You did an awesome job on this. It looks amazing my friend.
P.S. thank you so much for my beautiful card. I have it at a place of honor on my mantel. I just love the way it sparkles and it looks so pretty up there. You will see the flowers you sent on the card I uploaded today. Thank you so very much my friend!!!

That line of reindeer is fabulous!!! Haven't seen that MS punch - they flew off the shelves at my local Mike's the week I didn't go there - ugh! The EF is fabulous too! Great reindeer card on all fronts!
