Stampin' Up! Dasher Card

I have been busy making a couple of Christmas cards and here is my newest creation. Featuring the Dasher stamp from Stampin' Up! - don't you just I love his whimsical antlers and proud pose.   I have heat embossed the snowflake stamps from Snow Swirled in white on crumb cake and given the whole card a light misting in Vanilla Shimmer Spritz.

I have also made a little pillow box using early espresso and real red as a band.  I have made the topper out of Letters To Santa DSP and used a real red button and hemp twine.  These colours make this little box quite masculine but by changing the DSP allows you to convert the look to feminine. 
Stamp Sets: Dasher, Snow Swirled.
Paper: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Letters to Santa DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, VersaMark, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.
Cool Tools: Heat Gun, White Embossing Powder, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Hemp Twine, Real Red Button, 1" Circle Punch.  

Thanks For Looking,
