Reindeer Sparkly Christmas Greetings!

Hello - it's another damp day here.... I'm going to head out to some Christmas bazaars this morning before heading into work! I love Christmas bazaar season - to get to look at all the lovely hand-crafted items that others have made... and fulfill my obsession with mittens. I love mittens, they keep my hands nice and cozy in the winter, which is sadly right around the corner.. I know it's only October, but I have a feeling it will be early this year! Any whooo....

The card I'm sharing today is made using another obsession of mine... the Hexagon punch... I can't say it enough, I just love this punch! Well, I love most punches, but this one holds a special place in my heart :)  I used some Silver Glimmer Paper (to add some sparkle, ain't nothing wrong with that!!) and the Season of Style Designer Series paper stacks from the holiday catalogue. This paper stack goes a long way - 48 sheets of 4 1/2" X 6 1/2" sheets are perfect for cardmakers like me!! I layered all my hexagons onto whisper white cardstock and trimmed to get the look I wanted, then layered it onto wild wasabi cardstock and added some ribbon also in wild wasabi.

The stamp set is a HOSTESS only stamp set in the holiday catalogue, so it's only available if you host a workshop or have a $200+ order. It's a beautiful set - I just love that little reindeer stamp! I used the 1 1/4" circle punch to punch out the reindeer and layered him onto baked brown sugar and cherry cobbler punched out with the label bracket punch.
