I actually used some of the paper from the Twitterpated suite, which for those of you who haven't seen it, is a mainly floral set of papers from Stampin' Up! This just shows you that if you use a bit of imagination you can use all sorts of things in untraditional ways! I think the flowery red goes really well. It is a bold, bright card - just like the stag.
I embossed the deer in gold embossing powder again, and used little pearls to adorn his antlers, which I think worked really well. I softened the corners of the cream cardstock he is on, and mounted it all on an Early Espresso card. The Christmas sentiment is from the set "More Merry Messages" which is perfect for Christmas card making.
