Creating at Merry Monday and The Paper Players


Man, the month of November is getting away from me! Bet that happens to all of you too. Smile.

Today I couldn't resist submitting this card to the new challenge from Merry Monday. My reindeer is a NBUS die to me that I got from my LSS and it is from Impression Obsession.  I.O. Rubber Stamps is a new company for me, but I sure like this die.

I wanted a simple card, kind of a masculine card that is easily mailed. It is also quite CAS with just textured paper, bling, and of course, the fancy antlers. Can you see the wonderful texture of this really old paper that I've had for years? I found some on E-Bay when I look recently.

Here's the details:

Card base: Real Red, S.U.
Die: I.O. Die336-V
Paper: Craft from my stash & Sizzix Little Sizzles Texture
Sentiment: Inside, Merry Christmas, S.U.
Ink: Real Red, S.U.
Bling: Stash again

Thanks for stopping by.
Edited to add that I am submitting this card to  The Paper Players PP271and this card was chosen as a CAS Favorite for the Week ending December 6, 2015.

Also, seeing that you took your photo on a wooden desk or floor makes me wish someone would use your design to make a floor mat for the holidays! Wouldn't that be cool? Enjoy your day!
