A Heartwarming Christmas

Hello folks, hope you're managing to stay warm in this rather wild and windy weather we have, not to mention wet!
I'm back again (4th post this week!) today to share my card which is the inspiration over at the Studio 12 Creative Team and I made a vintage style creation with elements which all came from the Gingerbread Twist CD - another Christmas card for the pile - yay!

I covered the card blank with the pretty snowflake paper having first added a border trimmed from the kraft zigzag snowflake paper and a piece of black and white gingham ribbon for added pop.
I then added some circles of the same kraft paper and red poinsettia paper for contrast with a pretty white doily.
I finished off with the cute reindeer - don't you just love the little heart dangling from his antler - and one of the gorgeous word art elements.
The final touch is a handmade heart shaped button created from gold Fimo and stamped for texture before baking. I tied some thread into a bow through the holes.

Don't forget that we have a mega giveaway for November as Nikky has generously decided to give stash from Studio 12/Polka Doodles to the value of £50 to the winner - how about that for a fab Christmas present! All details are over at Studio 12.

Have a good day and stay warm.
Hugs, Fliss xx

The heart hanging from his antler is so cute as is the heart shaped button you embellished the card with.
