Here is my second Christmas card for the weekend. I went for sparkly scandinavian style on this one:
I used a backing paper from a paper pad, which was scandi-style, and added a glitter ribbon on the side. I cut a frame using a Sizzix die and left-over red mirri card. The reindeer was a free gift with Simply Cards and Papercraft 141, and was die-cut from cream glitter card that cam from the centre of a previous die-cut. I tried using self-adhesive backing sheets, but then had to cut the adhesive with a scalpel blade to keep it neat, so I think I need to get some of the official sheets (or just some of the self-adhesive glitter sheets that have just come out). I added white pearls and a red/white glitter papermania sentiment to finish.
