 welcome to another Christmas card post

I used a new technique today called herringbone 
I cut strips of Christmas patterned paper and arranged them in this formation
I die cut the circle, stamped the sentiment and tried again with heat embossing (previous attempts didn't go too well) this time it did come out ok (not so well in the photo) everything got very hot though!
I punched the raindeer and glued them around the circle

I am linking this card with

challenge 209 use your old stash
The patterned paper I used is a pad I bought when I was very new to card making and I haven't used them much as they are too small to use as backgrounds.  An early mistake learnt.  However this technique works well with them


Thanks for looking
