Oh deer!......

A few days ago I was sent an email to inform me that that there was a fantastic Christmas card Craft Off competition taking place at the moment run bt ....all of the deets of which you can find HERE. ...There is also some fabby prizes up for grabs... mini IPad and Hobbycraft vouchers. (Both of which I wouldn't mind getting my crafty little mitts on!!)
I LURVE receiving handmade cards at Christmas...and also send out Lots & Lots of handmade ones to my crafty friends....
I'm having a bit of a reindeer, twine and washi tape addiction at the mo...So here are a few simple ideas for some festive cards....
 First of all...Supplies...
This is what I have used...
card blanks
butcher twine
red buttons
paper doilies
washi tape
alpha stamps
Bingo Card
reindeer face  (sizzix Reindeer w/antlers die)
tags (sizzix tags die)
and this is what I created with these ingredients...

  Loving how you can use the washi tape, doilies a variety of different that no two cards are identical.

You can even use vintage emphera..I've used an old Bingo card for the background then added a paper doily, my reindeer (Don't forget a little red button for Rudolphs nose!!)...then finish it off with the butchers twine,tag and bells.
You can personalise the tags with the recipients name..
or add a greeting!
Then to complete, just add an insert...
and Voilà a simple but effective fun Card!
Thanks for peeking!
