Winter Reindeer

Yes, I know you may be tired of seeing another project from me using this Tim Holtz reindeer die but I love it so!  First up is a card I made this past Christmas.  (Click on the images for a more detailed view.)

Once again, I used paper from an older My Mind's Eye collection that I absolutely love.  I embossed a tag with a snowflake design by Darice, added the deer with foam dots for dimension, a bit of lace and a bow topped with a snowflake.  Under the tag, I added wooden snowflakes from Recollections and a bit of cheesecloth.  The word "noel" is from Tim Holtz' Holiday Words dies.

Next is a winter tag using the same reindeer diecut that was given a good coat of Martha Stewart glitter.

The tag base was made with leftover paper from the sheet I used on the card.  I added some snowflake stickers from Jolee's and Martha Stewart.  The pine branches at the bottom (punch from McGill) were given a coat of Stickles.  I used a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch for the shape at the bottom.  Again, I used another one of the words from Tim's Holiday Words die set.  A bit of eyelash yarn was tied to the top of the tag.

What can I say?  I love winter.  It was fun creating this card and the tag.  I promise to share something different the next time!  Thank you so much for stopping by and the sweet comments you leave.  Have a wonderful week!


  1. Well, you just KNOW how much I love that first card. ♥ And the tag is gorgeous. You're so talented!!!

  2. Beautiful projects Patty! Love the shimmery reindeer and fancy trimming!

  3. These look beautiful.. and I know what it is like to have a favourite die and just want to use it over and over.. isnt that the beauty of dies.. they can be used lots of times.. and I am not a lover of winter, but then we dont have the cold winters like others do!!

  4. I, for one, will never get tired of that adorable Tim Holtz deer.... and you absolutely make it shine, my friend! Love all the detail on your beautiful card and tag, Patty! Fabulous trims and love the punches and all the pretty snowflakes, too!

  5. I am the lucky recipient of the beautiful shimmery TH deer tag! Thank you ever so much Patty for the tag and gift. All the details - the white eyelash ribbon like icicles, the copper sparkly deer, and the embossed/glitter snowflakes and branches make for a wintry tag. Very nice!

    1. I forgot to mention the beaded snowflake embellishment....very vintage looking!
