Winter Holiday theme for December 2019 at A Place To Start challenge blog

Another Christmas 2019 card: I've made a wintery Christmas card without a true cover sentiment due to the very large reindeer focal for my design team project commitment for APTS. The mix of patterned papers are also placed in a different format in order to emphasize the sloped angle of the reindeer's legs and curved antlers.

Here is the unusual card for my resident designer status at APTS=

All 3 patterned papers are available from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby. The deer and snowflake were part of a larger set bought at a dollar store. "hello, dear" sticker is also from a set of stickers that I purchased last year at Christmas-time at Hobby Lobby. Base card is kraft paper.
