Funkie Masculine Milk...

Reindeer Milk Carton
I kept this milk carton fairly simple once I got my inspiration.
Here is Linda's 4th tag for the 
12 Tags of Christmas Challenge
I drew inspiration from the reindeer, silver and brown shades, mesh and black yarn.
Angle Shot
I designed the DP by using this free image at the Graphics Fairy
Carton on its side
After making the DP I versamark stamped snowflakes and then powder embossed in silver. 
Highlighted the snowflakes with Close to Cocoa Ink and then added gems to the centers.
Placed random strips of mesh around the carton and then tied black twine to make the hangar.

So far, these little cartons are looking really cute together

Have a great one!

Wow, that's a fabulous vintage image and it looks spectacular on your milk carton, Lisa! The sponging with the Close to Cocoa ink adds such a great vintage look and I'm drooling over that gold mesh - I really love texture like that. You're getting an amazing line up of holiday milk cartons - they're just gorgeous lined up like that!

Thanks for your latest contribution to this little challenge of mine! Hope to see you next week.
