A Crackled Dasher

It's finally Friday! Yay!!!
I hope and pray everyone has had a great week.
Thank you for visiting me. I appreciate it greatly.
Today's Christmas card is Clean and Simple. I've used one of my favorite colors SU! makes...Old Olive. I just adore this color. I've also used one of my favorite stamps (right now of course, after the Holidays I'll come up with a new favorite!)...Dasher! Isn't he the prettiest little reindeer you ever did see?


I started with Old Olive then built on it with paper from the Merry Moments DSP pack. I then used real red c/s. I stamped Dasher in Chocolate Chip ink on some 'crackle' paper I had in my stash (scrap folder). I really like how it turned out on that patterned paper. It gives the card an older vintage feel. I stamped 'Merry Christmas' in Real red ink. Finished it off with some misc. cream colored buttons. This was very simple to make. I love those kinds of cards!
I'm getting a lot of Christmas cards finished! I like making progress don't you? I hope this gives you some inspiration for your next Holiday project.
Have a great weekend!
Until next time...
Blessings...
