From Dasher to Rudolph

Today I'm going to share one of my favorite holiday icons, the reindeer! From Dasher to Rudolph, reindeer have always been a favorite part of Christmas for me. when I was little they represent the magic of Christmas, I mean they can fly after all :) Now I think I like them because they seem so graceful, and I kind of have a thing for antlers...they're just cool.

To celebrate my reindeer love, I have a card to share.

Cardstock: (white) Bazzill, Patterned paper: (Letter Tiles, Labels and Tags, Zigzag, Woven Chevron) from the Splendor collection), (Weekend Fun from the Country Charm collection ) GCD Studios, Stamp: (Christmas Sampler) Paper Smooches, Ink: (Chestnut Roan) ColorBox, Button: American Crafts, Twine: My Mind's Eye, Dies: (Standard circles LG, Standard Circles SM) Spellbinders Paper Arts
Size: 6"x4.5"

I create this using papers from the Splendor and Country Charm collections from GCD Studios as well as a deer cut out that I designed my self. Of course I had to make my deer leaping as if in flight and sporting some pretty fabulous antlers.

I used some circle dies to create a background, and added some hand cut holly leaves, with a button and twine as an accent.

And because I like to share I thought I'd offer up my deer pattern :) Hope you like!
