A very simple Christmas card - maybe for a guy ...

This stamp is from a set of Elusive Image stamps I have had for a long time, and not really used.  I quite like the image of the reindeer with the swirls, and wanted to stamp in a colour to go with the tartan ribbon,  Hence the red.  I do think probably I need to find a slightly darker red next time around though.  Either side of the ribbon I have scored a couple of lines to add a bit more interest., but they don't show in the photo.

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

Cards for men - anything goes
Stamping 411 - I followed their sketch

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.

  4. This card has a lovely Sottish feel to it. Love that Tartan ribbon.

  5. Love the simplicity of this card Val, the image is lovely and the ribbon really pops out on it's own. I can just make out some of the lines you added.
    Hope you are having a good day.

  6. Love the card, Val. It is simple, colourful and very elegant. I agree with you that a darker red for the deer might be even better!
