Deer deer!

This is very sparkly in real life - doesn't show up in the picture!

This deer stamp, from Non Sequitur , has been a fixture of my Christmases for about ten years (longer than my partner or son!) - but I can still think of ideas to use him.
For the top card I used Prima 'North Country' papers, a circle die, Memory Box snowflake corner die , silver embossing powder (for the stamp and also randomly sprinkled into white ink on the edges of the background paper) and Glamour Dust. I just wish all my sparkles showed up in the photo!
For the bottom card I used the same stamp and circle die, gold ep, a Sizzix architectural accent,
a Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing folder (Xmas trees) that I then cut out and Kaisercraft papers.
I'd like to enter the top card into these challenges:
Craft-room Challenge Punches and die cuts
Polkadoodles Square card with a round element
Crafty Cardmakers More than one punch or die cut

2 very different styles, but both equally stunning. The circle behind the deer is a very clever idea. Brilliant!!! Thank you for joining us at Polka Doodles.
