Rodney the Reindeer

Happy Bank Holiday Monday!  Here is another card for my Christmas collection - I must have a count up to see how I am doing. 

I've made this card using a topper and backing paper from the Kraftyhands Cringle & Company CD set, and a die cut from baking parchment, YES, backing parchment!  Last week I was making a card (which I'll be able to share with you next weekend) using the Spellbinders decorative lace border die which is rather intricate, so I put a piece of baking parchment inbetween the card and the die to make it easier to pop out.  When I was tidying up, I looked at the baking parchment piece and thought it looked rather pretty so decided to keep it and use on a card, and here it is.  It was just wide enough to wrap around the polkadot card to attach it at the back so no need for any glue on the front - I think I might use this idea more often!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Red and Green Should Be Seen
Bearly Mine - 49 Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Linky Party #104

Materials Used:
Kraftyhands - Cringle & Company CD set
Spellbinders - decorative lace border die
Craftwork Cards - white card blank
Gold mirri card and red polkadot ribbon from stash
Lakeland - baking parchment
