A Deer card

Hi Everyone, back to Christmas and a card and box I made for my new GGNiece, when we were looking around a local store's Christmas display, I saw these little baubles and thought they were perfect for a baby of mixed nationalities of Welsh, English and Scottish with a little Irish from her ancestors LOL. It would remind her of her Welsh heritage, I hope with the Welsh National costume, the Welsh National flower the Daffodil and of course the Dragon on our flag, it will.

Anyhow, the card is a cut file by Lori Whitlock, but I added the cut hearts and wrote the sentiment with the Silhouette pens, then added the layer to gold card also cut with the Silhouette. A couple of gems and it was done.

The box is a cupcake cut file from Paper Garden Products

showing the cupcake holder inside the box, 
I had to make the hole slightly bigger for the bauble.

this is showing the bauble which has "Nadolig Llawen" written on it, 
which is Welsh for "Happy Christmas".

Awww, I just love this Faith! That little deer is so precious with his little red bow and wee red nose! The fancy frame is very elegant and the touches of gold are so wonderfully festive! What a lovely first Christmas card! Very clever idea with the cupcake holder! hugs :)

How clever of you to transform a cupcake holder for the lovely bauble. Very cool. The card is precious. I'm sure your GG niece will love this unique package.

Awesome work with the cut file, and the silhouette pens. I've never tried to use those, although a package came when I bought the cameo. Love the ornament, and what a treasured keepsake it will be for this little baby - to keep her heritage in mind as she grows. Love the darling little deer, and that's a pretty shape for the focal image. The gold really sets off the shape, and of course, I love all the delicious red. Well done once again, with your silhouette skills. TFS & Hugs
