California Die and a 'Freebie'......



Follow on Bloglovin 

For my card today I have used Sue Wilsons California background die and cut it lengthwise and popped it onto black card then mounted it onto Vintage gold card.  The lovely reindeer was part of a 'freebie' along with two stamps and an embossing folder on a magazine this month I dont normally buy magazines but thought the stamps and embossing folder was worth the price of the magazine!
Stamped and mounted the lovely swirly reindeer onto one of the Spellbinders Floral Oval dies...finished by card off with some gold ribbon and a few gold 'pearls' .....Cant get a good photo with the black and the gold sorry...

Hope you are all enjoying this lovely warm weather....

Hello Anne
The Reindeer looks wonderful, but it is your palette and design that enhances the whole look of the card. Great work.
