25 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS, DAY #10: Elegant Christmas Deer Black & Gold Card...

Today's 25 Days of Christmas project is one I was just in the mood for yesterday.   I was determined to use the Christmas Deer stamp set which had not yet seen ink.  I just LOVE this image, but hadn't really found a project I liked for it yet.  I forced myself to go outside the box and use a color I never use for Christmas cards - BLACK!   And the result wasn't half bad!  Maybe I should venture out of my box a little more often?

Unfortunately, the all black card doesn't photograph very well.  There is a black layer that is embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog (my new favorite folder) and then spritzed with Champagne Shimmer Mist on top of the black card base.  It is a beautiful glittery layer, but it just looks like a few pieces of glitter on the black in the photo.  Trust me though - it is soooo shimmery!

On top of that is the fabulous Champagne Glimmer Paper from the Holiday Catalog.  It is NOT on the carryover list as past Glimmer Papers have been, so be sure to stock up before January 2.  I know I will!  I hope you enjoy my nontraditional Christmas card!
