Purple reindeer!

After last weeks reindeer massacre (see here for details!) I decided I should try to restore the balance by making a quick reminder card. I searched hi & low for reindeer pics in my stash - think they've all run away in fear having seen what I did to their friends last week [sigh]

So the only reindeer I could find were purple & green (naturally!!) from an old mag cover kit (can't remember which one). Backing paper is a leftover piece printed from a Funky Hand cd, not really Christmas but if you squint they could be snowflakes :-). And the colours match perfectly, despite what the camera shows!

All white card from snippets, run thru a cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, and die cut into snowflakes. Purple card for matting leftover from die cutting something else ages ago. All finished off with liberal splodges of Stickles Crystal 

Off to checkout Pixies playground & see what others have done this week with their snippets!

Thanks for stopping by

  1. These are great festive colors, and good for you, for searching the reindeer out to use as snippets. Loved the backing papers too, and they did indeed resemble funky snowflakes! Cool. Liked the added touch of the die cut sparkling snowflakes too. Nice layout. TFS & see ya in the Playground. Hugs

  2. Lovely card Debs, and I do so love the colours you used. Thank you for the emailed instructions BTW :) And great to see you in the Playground!

    Hugs, Di xx

  3. Great card there Debs. Need to see what you did to the Reindeers last week! Santa will not be best pleased by the sound of it! At least you have gone some way to make amends! Love this card and of course you get extra points for it being purple!

  4. Lovely card, Debs. I love the non-traditional colours and I think that paper is just perfect. Oh, and I do know that the camera can get colours quite wrong ... I've been complaining in my latest post about it too :)) Elizabeth xx

  5. Hi Debs

    Great card .. .. and great use of your snippets too!!

    Love the colour combo.

    I had to back track to look at the reindeer massacre and have to admit to having a little giggle. Love your sense of humour.

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  6. Great card! Nothing wrong with purple and green reindeer‼ Had a trip back to read about the massacre - which made me giggle, bet they tasted nice though!


I love reading your comments, so fire away!
