I had just purchased this stamp set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I followed their example on how to stamp the "noel". I struggled with the background of this card as the handsome hunter and the bravo burgandy seemed so dark. As I was riffling through my dp I came across a scrap of this gold glitter paper that I made for an anniversary card (somewhere in my older posts) and thought, aha! this is it. Hmm, then I had some difficulty with the 4 squares in the background. Everything I tried was too busy. Then I thought about the reindeer stamp I got as a freebee from Rubber Stamp Tapestry and that worked great for the upper two panels. The bottom half came together when I found this little background stamp. I then took the scraps of the gold glitter paper I just cut and used that in each corner. For the final embellishment I punched out three snowflakes in the colors of the card.
Unfortunately the picture doesn't do the card justice. It looks much more elegant IRL.
