12 Days of a CAS Christmas #10 – Vintage Christmas Deer by Tricia Traxler

Christmas cards and deer just sort of seem to go together.  And not only Santa’s reindeer, but “real” deer.  Standing in a stately fashion or leaping through the air, they are always a perfect compliment to a Christmas theme.  And deer are always a good choice when making a card to send to a man.  Tricia’s card for today makes use of a grand looking buck, standing on snow covered ground.  Tricia’s attention to detail makes this clean and simple card a true standout.  Take a look:


And what are the details here that I love so much?

1)  The contrast the white mat layer offers against the burgundy card base – just makes it all POP a bit; 2) The stitching; 3)  The sponging on the beautiful die cut oval; 4) The placement of the pearls.  Beautifully done!
