After numerous attempts at cards this year I decided on this simple design. I fell in love with the reindeer die cuts from Tim Holtz when I first saw them and they definitely did not disappoint.
The snow drifts were created using the Sizzlit Decorative Strip "Abstract". The star was cut using a Paddle Punch die.
The background paper was something I've had in my stash for years. Unfortunately I only had enough for half a dozen cards so the rest were contructed using plain navy blue card with some punched snow flakes.
I'm pretty sure the local supermarket still has this card in stock but it's been snowing so much I didn't have a chance to get there.
The Glitter card stock is from the Craft Barn.

A going away card for friends who are leaving Luxembourg.
The inside reads "The place won't be the same without you".
I cut a circle as a moon mask and created a background using distress inks. The house and fence are from Tim Holtz's line of Sizzix dies of course. The windows and door were backed with old book text and then coated with crackle glaze.
