Rudolph, fabric and faux stitching

Hello bloggers today's card uses fabric, faux stitching and die cuts.

This card began as a white hammered 6x6 card blank.  To the front I adhered some green checked cotton  fabric and then cut it to size.  With a ProMarker I added some faux stitching around the edges.  Next I die cut the frame from some music paper using Spellbinders 'labels fourteen' die set.  Next using a page from an old book I die cut the flower using Spellbinders 'spiral blossom three' die.  This was rolled up and adhered into place.  Once dry this was inked up on the edges with festive berries distress ink.  The frame and flower were adhered to the card blank.  Using some tartan ribbon I tied a bow and adhered it to the bottom of the frame.  Next using some brown leather look paper I die cut the reindeer using Spellbinders 'fanciful holiday' die set.  To the nose I added some red glitter glue and once dry this was adhered to the card inside the frame.  Finally I die cut the holly and berries four times from white cardstock using Spellbinders 'poinsettia frame' die set.  Whilst still in the die I inked through with pine needles and festive berries distress inks.  The holly berries were adhered to each corner of the card.
