Gift Package Card with Vintage-Look Reindeer Ornament Inside

This rather plain ribbon-tied card hides the surprise ornament inside. The card base was cut with a Sizzix die set that I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  The tag was made with a Paper Smooches die and decorated with the Sizzix embossing folder and die cut foil words (word die is in the Sizzix folding card set).
Here is the reindeer ornament that was hiding in the card.  The vintage look of the deer was achieved with a coating of Martha Stewart Gesso sprinkled with MS fine white glitter. The ornament is tied to the card with the ribbon that is the ornament hanger and which ties in a bow in the back of the card.    ( In the photo above, there is another style of ribbon (Heiko) used for the card band.)
The green panel inside the card is also embossed with the folder and slipped into the card tabs before gluing it in place.  I am very happy with the result of this card and hope to acquire more unpainted laser cut ornaments to use in my next year's Xmas projects....gotta start thinking about 2017!
