Reindeer & Snowflakes

Afternoon, I hadn't planned on posting any cards today as I'm in the middle of making three customer orders, but that went up in smoke (literally, lol) as my glue gun blew up.  I've got an old glue gun but it typically takes the larger glue sticks, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to finish them off.

So I've got a few quick cards to share with you.

This card couldn't be simpler, I've started with a sheet of a4 black card and sprayed it with spray & sparkle pearl diamond by Crafters Companion (got a slight addiction to this stuff, love it!).  When dry I folded the card in half to make a a5 card blank and layered with gold mirri.  I then cut lots of snowflakes out of goldmirri and arranged them until I was happy, stuck them down and cut off all the overhanging edges.  I also cut the reindeer out of gold mirri.  The black ribbon was some I found lurking in the bottom of my ribbon box and then I added a few of the gold bells.

My second card was even quicker, again I used a a5 card, then layered it with some gold glitter card I had in my stash (unfortunately the glitter doesn't show at all in the pic).

I then cut a piece of a5 pearlescent card I used the decorative die and cut the card from the top, then bottom.  I cut the Merry Christmas die out of the same gold glitter card and glued it to the centre, I finished it off by adding little pearls to each corner.

Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.

I'm sorry to hear about your glue gun, but I'm glad it gave you time to create these lovely two cards, Maria. I particularly love how elegant the gold and black look together, and how perfectly the little bells finish of your design.
