creatures of Christmas adventure

All the creatures are stirring at Jingle Belles this week, and of course, the first one I think of is reindeer.  Here's one on a background my Star Struck Stampers teammate Deb taught us:
stamp set - Nature Sings; ink - Old Olive, Pacific Point, Garden Green, Memento Tuxedo Black; card stock - Glossy White, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla Thick

It's a variation of the polished stone technique, we just swiped the swabs with rubbing alcohol and reinker rather than dotting with them - so pretty!

And here's a tinier one (can you seem him there, in front of the sentiment and the single tree?), in silhouette for The Male Room:
stamp sets - Christmas Pines, Carols of Christmas (on the envelope); ink - Basic Black Archival, Old Olive; card stock - Basic Black, Champagne Foil, Old Olive, Whisper White; designer series paper - Merry Little Christmas, Merry Music; baker's twine - Whisper White; Big Shot with Card Front Builder and Pretty Pines

This card is completely CASEd from the Holiday catalog (page 14), although I changed the color and some smaller details.

Love your layering over the music and your little reindeer, the trees are also a silhouette I think, onto your wonderful background, a Super card. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with us at The Male Room. Faith DT
