Nordic Reindeer

Another hexagon christmas card albeit a very different look and colour scheme than the last one. I have used the new Pink Petticoat nordic reindeer in boutique blue and this colour matches perfectly the "Elegant Evening' Papertrey card stock.

I used the hexagon impression plate to cut the pp paper then inserted them back into the correct place and added the blue on top, I like this look and can see it being very versatile. It doesn't take very long and is in fact very therapeutic a bit like a jigsaw puzzle lol.

The baubles are stamped and embossed in silver although it looks gold on the photo, I was stuck for a way to stop them looking like they were hanging in mid air so used a peel off, can't believe this is the first time I have used one in years when they used to be used on every card.

Wow, another stunning hexagons card Amanda. Love the blues too. And the baubles are such a great touch - isn't it odd, I keep wondering whether to ditch my peel offs but something says 'No' - and this is a perfect example.

Clever you buying the dies when in the USA too :)

Hugs, Di xx
