MTTC Blog no 446 Christmas Animals Theme

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart is always excited about Christmas cards however my creative vision sometimes takes a misstep. See the bonus or 2nd card in this post for my statement. 

I like the card when it is standing up and viewing it from a foot or two away but up close, I don't. I don't know if it is the brown glitter reindeer at the topic or the different images in the washi tape or the contrast of patterned papers. I just know when I started pulling deer/reindeer items along with blue and gray papers, I thought I would be happy with the result instead of being so-so. 

Now for the main card or #1 card--it was made after the other, so the pressure was on. Different orientation, papers, most of the colors, and most of the embellishments have produced a new look and a much improved personal satisfaction with the results!!!! 

This challenging card is my design team project for My Time To Craft challenge blog's new theme fortnight challenge of Christmas Animals #446 starting 27 November 2020.
