Festive 48 - Week 31

This week I used an Indigo Blu stamp, coloured with gold mica powders; embossing powders and a die cut reindeer head.

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me by linking up ONE card each week. 

This link up is always 'Any Christmas Card Goes'. 

Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards. 

I'd like to enter:
Crafty Hazelnuts  Fur or feather 
Completely Christmas  anything goes 
Allsorts  all sentimental 
Craft for the Craic  item never uses before - stamp.

Beautiful card! Great use of the color combo!

I love this color combo and how you used that sentiment stamp with the reindeer head cut. It looks really Christmasy, a combination of elegant and traditional.

I don't know if you're a subscriber of Cardmaking & Papercraft, but in case you're not i wanted to let you know I've got two issues as a candy on my blog. Silly me made a double subscription, all unintended, so I give away my duplicates for someone else to enjoy.
