I love the Dasher stamp, the tote and the layouts, but the colour combinaation is a little out of my comfort zone for Christmas - I still like the reds, greens and golds. I did stretch myself a little bit and although I still have my red, I used blue! Blue for Christmas - I am still not quite sure about that, but I do know that I am very pleased with my cards. I was so anxious to share that the photos are not the very best. I have to do something about my lighting. All four of the cards and the tote use Baja Breeze (retired), Real Red and Whisper White card stock as well as Ski Slope DSP (retired). the stamp set used is Four the Holidays (in the Holiday Mini Catalogue). All products used are Stampin' Up!
On this card Dasher was stamped on Baja Breeae with versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The Whisper White and Real red were layered onto the DSP and the ribbon was wrapped around and tied. A couple of red brads were used and then the whole panel was adhered to the base card. The greeting was stamped with black stazon. The base card was cut at 4.25 X 11. Scored at 5.5. The fold is to the left of the card.
The real red base for this card was cut at 4.25 X 11 and scored at 5.5. The fold is to the left. Dasher was stamped onto a piece of Baja breeze and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

This card really takes me out of my comfort zone - a blue reindeer! I was really surprised that I liked it. I hope you do too. First I inked Dasher up with my versamark pad and then I inked him with Baja Breeze. Stamped him onto whisper white and then heat embossed with clear emobssing powder. The scallops on the baja breeze strip were pierced. The greeting was heat embossed with white embossing powder.
