I'm In the Club

The Christmas Card Club that is, lol, I joined some fabulous ladies who have the same idea that I chose for my New Years Resolution and that is to make Christmas cards all year round.  I was so happy that I joined as it gives me that little bit extra incentive and encouragement, if you would like to visit the other ladies their links are in my side bar.
The theme chosen for this particular card is Think Thin, to make a Christmas card that is thin enough to pass through the 5mm limit set by the Post Office, so it will not cost extra if you want to post the card to a family member or friend.  
I decided to use my Nordic stamp set, I told you that I would be using these a lot, lol.
I used the colour combo of Black, White and Red, the white card is Linen effect, I have used Versafine and Momento ink pads, I used the double Reindeer stamp and sentiment that I cut out with a nestie die cut, I punched two holes to thread some thin red ribbon through then adhered it to the card. I did add some small red and black gems but they are only titchy.
I have taken a picture of the side view to show you that this card is definitely thin. 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you like my card and maybe be inspired to make your Christmas cards all year round, I really do not want to end up buying Christmas cards again, lol.
Hugs to all see you in a bit.
