W - Wild Thing

That's our new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge
My - Wild Thing - is a glittery reindeer with a jingle bell around his neck. After all, it won't be long until Santa saddles up the reindeer for their annual Christmas Eve flight. ;) 

The only stamping on the front of my card is on the layered die cut Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament. The bottom layer is a blue dp and I stamped a snowflake by Taylored Expressions randomly in Memento's Paris Dusk ink . I die cut another heirloom ornament in pale blue vellum and adhered it on top. Clear rhinestones were added to the snowflake centers and I outlined it with silver Stickles. 

For the reindeer I die cut a Prancing Deer by Tim Holtz from grungeboard and gave it a coat of gesso. After it dried I brushed on a coat of matte gel and gave it a generous sprinkling of Twinklets Diamond Dust glitter. Silver twine and a small jingle bell are the finishing details which you can see below.  

Silver Liquid Pearls and pretty lace trim finish the front. Now for the inside...yes I know I rarely share the inside of my cards but Christmas is literally around the corner and I want to be prepared. Plus I just love the sentiment which is also by Taylored Expressions. 

Sentiment says:
Let the Reindeer fly
and the snowflakes fall,
'Tis the season again
That brings joy us us all.

The die cut trees are by Verve Stamps and I traced my snowy fields on white cardstock and fussy cut them, then I layered the two together and added a band of Silver Liquid Pearls and a snowflake brad. The dp's are by Hot Off the Press and they've been in my stash awhile. Normally blue is not my color of choice at Christmas since I'm a traditional gal but I really like this combo. I might have to do a blue, white and silver tree someday, it's a possibility. :)

Beautiful! I love reindeer on Christmas cards and it looks pretty with all that glitter and sparkle. I think you did a great job with the inside as well, I actually think it would make a nice front on a card too.
