It's a super Christmas card Lorraine and love the design, am thinking you must have cut out those antlers to place them, great patience in doing so.

Hi Lorraine,

I love how you have got that cute image poking out of your die cut.
Super embossing, and of course such a luxurious touch with that mirri card.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Lorraine, this is a beautiful card - your colouring looks wonderful - really well done - I avoided that image because I was worried by the fur! I love your card design too - and I am particularly taken with that gorgeous embossing folder..

Anne said...

This is lovely work Lorraine, I have that Marianne die and never knew quite what to do with it! It works perfectly on your card with that image so thanks for the inspiration!

MaryH said...

Love, love this sweet image, and my, how you played it up so wonderfully with the gleam of gold & white. Love the fancy cutout circle aperture and the coppery colors of the image that shows through. The antlers outside the cutout looks so dimensional and of course I love the sentiment look. Nice embossing pattern to compliment your focal image as well. TFS & Hugs

Karen said...

Lorraine, this is a golden Christmas dream! :o) The image is spectacular and your positioning of it brings it to life even more. The embossed background is darling. I don't think I've ever seen a sweeter embossing folder! :o) Gorgeous work! I am returning from another necessary break to care for health and family concerns. Thank you for sticking with me during this tough year!

Hugs and blessings,
