Monochrome Reindeer

Another Christmas card using lots more snippets - although my snippets box doesn't seem to be getting any smaller!

I trimmed a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank, rounded the corners and die cut a stitched circle from the centre.  I attached the wood effect card behind the aperture and attached the panel to the card.  I die cut three reindeers from dark brown pearlescent card and the swirl and bow from a lighter brown card.  I layered the three bodies, cutting the back leg of the bottom layer so it would lie flat across the card, before attaching it.  I layered the antlers and attached them.  The light brown swirl was inlaid into the reindeer body and the bow attached to his neck.  To finish I added three small brown snowflakes around the reindeer.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Creative Dies 'Elegant Reindeer' and My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics' dies
     Kanban 'Cosy Christmas' wood effect card
     Snippets of dark brown and light brown pearlescent card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Monochromatic

This is a very pretty Christmas card Kath and love the layered deer placed over the edge of the stitched circle aperture, and the wood grain makes a great background together with the sweet little snowflakes. x
