This card was heavily influenced by a tag on Linda's blog. I made up all the elements to put on a normal sized card, then found that no way could I use them all! I just thought Linda's tag was a normal sized tag - nooooo I have since checked out those GIANT tags and they are huge!! Something like 10 inches by 5 inches!! No wonder I couldn't fit an more on there. I even had a little scene cut out to use but it will keep!
So here I have used a SU River Rock base card, it is layered with a piece of manilla folder which has had the faux suede treatment, coloured, then stamped with the pine tree from my all favourite SU set Lovely As a Tree! The reindeer were die cut out of cardboard and SU Very Vanilla, then clear embossed snowflakes and sponged over.
The greeting has been stamped on SU Real Red card and clear embossed. I used a die from the SU die from the Apothecary Accents Framelits set to cut it out and then used a layer of Opals with a touch of gold embossing powder over the whole piece. There is a strip of tissue tape across the bottom and a die cut border covered with chunky glitter. The snowflakes are charms from my stash as are the mesh and button.
