Reindeer in the Woods
Christmas is almost here, so I'm creating lots of Christmas cards at the moment. The one I have to share with you today features the Reindeer die from Die-Versions and a layering stamp set by Hero Arts.
I started out by stamping the trees in different colors of green to see which combination I liked the best. I ended up using Memento Ink (Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves) and Brilliance (Pearlescent Ivy). The top layer for the trees was stamped with VersaMark and heat set with White Spark embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The background of falling snow was also stamped using one of the stamps from the Hero Arts set.
The snowy banks were hand cut (although the trees ended up covering up most of the banks) and then heat embossed with Sparkle embossing powder. I added Nuvo Glitter Drops (White Blizzard) for more definition of the banks.
The reindeer was die cut from white cardstock. I colored his hoofs with a Copic marker and then began adding flock to various the rest of the die cut. His antlers are covered with Buff flock, his tail with Snow White flock, and his body with Amber Wheat flock. He is so soft to touch. Unfortunately the reindeer is temporarily out of stock.
Hope this gives you some more Christmas card ideas. :-)
