Elegant reindeer

This one of my all time Christmas favourite sets.
FRCL143 Winter Wonderland

It does not need much in the way of colouring. I like to stamp it in black and add light washes of a single colour as in this card where I have used teal. For the moon, grass and trees on the teal panel I have used a Starlight Black Brilliance inkpad. Its a dark silver or pewter gray. 

Yes... the cute rabbits come in the set. This set is all about building a scene so the elements vary in size and some are solid. There are greetings included in the set and I have used one on the main panel.
The main part of the card is a 14.5 cm square card but I have cut off a section from the front panel. Then I have made a smaller card for the main reindeer panel. That card is stuck to the inside of the card and it opens the opposite way. I think the photo just about shows the mechanics...

I have used 3mm 'Nailheads' for the corners and added one for the reindeer's nose to glow! The silver card adds to the wintery effect.

The trees could be used all year round and not just for Christmas...


  1. Oh, Francoise, I love this card...colors, layout, elements, and especially those images. I definitely need those next year for Christmas!

  2. Love this clear stamp set, and as you say the trees (and rabbits) could be used lots of other times too. Like the way that you have folded the card differently, and the colours are very elegant.
