Vintage Reindeer


"I have always thought Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time, a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely..." -Charles Dickens


Show off your clean and simple creations featuring scoring at CAS-ual Fridays this week. What better sponsor to have than Scor-pal! You can check out the amazing inspiration from the Girl Fridays, read more about the challenge details and rules and find out about the sponsor and prize at the CAS-ual Fridays Blog.

I wanted to go old-school vintage, with a modern twist, on my clean and simple creation, so I chose to stamp lightly a postcard image onto some ivory paper. I added a diagonal, scored strip of midnight blue patterned paper for some movement. I covered a wooden reindeer embellishment with distress ink and touches of gold glitter to replicate vintage ornaments and adhered it to the card in the same direction as the scored panel. I finished the card with a stamped greeting from Snowflake Greetings by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

  11. I know that the reindeer is supposed to be the focal point of the card, but the scored paper strip grabs my attention more. How can something as simple as score lines add so much to a card?
