CHNC 30 - Reindeer

Time waits for no one .. that is so true, time is flying by. I cannot believe we are soon coming into the month of August.

Over at CHNC Hazel asks that
This week I would like you to see at least one reindeer on your card.

I decided I would use my lovely 'Sizzix Embosslits' Reindeer. I embossed him onto Core'dinations Whitewash, once sanded it brought out the nice brown core. I mounted him onto some gold mirror card. I used a piece of Kraft card, embossed with swiss dots and swiped over with fluid chalk. I have also embossed the Nellies Scalloped rectangle. My card also fits perfectly for Bah Humbugs Challenge 29 'Beads' 
The Humbuggers say
I threded a small shimmering red pony bead onto a piece of the pretty organza. Poundland have them in at the moment covering various spectrums and tones of colour. The set I used goes from cream, various shades of browns, gold to the very pretty shimmering dark golden brown I used on this card. I am guessing that if you were to get a sample of each colour at your local haberdashery it would be much more than a pound for the combination of colours included in each pack.
Cast your beady little eyes ...*snigger* ... around all the nooks, crannies and crafty cubbyholes until you find your box of delightful beads ... crystal beads ... plastic beads ... sparkly beads ... micro-beads ... wooden beads ...  in fact any kind of beads at all ... EXCEPT the 'beads of sweat' that are threatening to tickle your top lip, 'cos that's absolutely NOT what we want to see ... so hurry and wipe them away LOL.  

Finally, My card also fits in nicely with 'Christmas In July over at
The Rubber Cafe

  1. This is such a classy card, Carole - thank you so much for once again joining in my CHNC challenge - I look forward to seeing your next contribution. x

  2. Hi. I don't recognise your Sizzix embosslit but I like it very much. It (and you!) has made a very stylish card. Kate x

  3. What a beautiful embossed reindeer which makes a really classy card and the gorgeous organza needs no other decoration than that single bead to nip it in. I bought packs of these organza strips last year -one of red shades and one of blues and found them extremely useful. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
