The Christmas Stag




Morning crafting friends , thanks for the kind words regarding my aches and pains , we defiantly have a lovely hobby to make life better . I, for one , love making Christmas cards and here is one to show you today .

I've used 3 tattered lace dies , the stag and the trees background are from last years snow globe collection and the oval tree die is from the back to black collection.
The sentiment is a sizzix die , from a Tim Holtz set . The snowflake die is from Mariane Dies.
I've used white and blue glitter card and pearlized white card (well it is for Christmas ).
The stag is coloured with promarkers.
