Simply for the Christmas gang

You may have noticed links in my sidebar to the Christmas gang - a group of crafters who like to get ahead with making Christmas cards throughout the year - one of the gang chooses a topic for the fortnight. If you are interested in joining in, just get in touch with one of us.

For this challenge Claire asked us to use red, white and green and include a reindeer.

I have to confess that atm I'm chasing my tail a bit and trying to get as much crafting done as possible - quite a few commissions and swaps etc to do, so I went for the easy option. PM Classic Christmas papers were still out on my work surface, having used some on Friday for a card, so I decided to make a couple of CAS cards for this challenge. The card blanks are stardream, which has a lovely sparkly sheen to it and there is red foiling on the papers I used.

This is also for:
