Elegant Reindeer

I've just bought some new die storage so have had a good sort through my dies.  I came across this Elegant Reindeer die which had been a magazine freebie ages ago - perfect for Darnell's NBUS Challenge (for those who don't know, NBUS is 'Never-Before-Used-Schtuff'.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large & Classic Scalloped Circles Large, Creative Dies 'Elegant Reindeer' (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Snippets of white hammer, red mirri, brown and gold card

I die-cut and embossed a circle from white hammer card and a scalloped circle from gold card.  The white circle was layered onto the scalloped circle and attached to the card front.  I die cut the Elegant Reindeer from brown and gold card and attached it to the circle, inlaying a gold scroll in the reindeer body.  I die cut an extra couple of snowflakes (these are also on the same die) and attached them to the card.  To finish, I die cut the bow from red mirri and attached it to the reindeer.  I was going to attach a red gem to its nose, but didn't have one small enough so will keep this as a flat card for cheaper posting.

I love this balanced composition, Kath, with your circle and scallops inside the square! That is one gorgeous reindeer to be giving away free! She looks so happy to be galloping across your card in the snow and I think the pretty red bow you gave her is just the perfect pop of red so no nose is necessary!! Besides, I'm thinking she is the partner of one of Santa's reindeer. Perhaps this is Olive the other reindeer?! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6!! Hugs, Darnell
