Merry Reindeer

It's officially autumn now (insert sad face here) so I might as well make Christmas cards. The current Muse: ChristmasVisions card is by Cornelia



Isn't it cute? I was inspired by the trees, the dry embossing, the fun Christmas critter and the clean design with lots of white space. Here's what I ended up with: 


I switched the evergreens to birch trees; when I saw Cornelia's card, I decided to break out this birch tree die that I've had for eons but haven't used until now. My sweatered reindeer seemed to match the whimsy of the trees. I used a stencil to dry emboss snowflakes into the sky — normally I'd have coloured the sky blue, but I wanted to emulate Cornelia's white space. I managed to use three different embossing powders on this card! Clear, white, and sparkle for the sentiment.  


Supplies: white & Stampin' Up smokey grey cardstock, Bienfang bristol paper, Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper, Hero Arts Christmas Reindeer & Holiday Conversation stamps, Versafine onyx black, Stampin' Up real red & Versamark inks, Zing clear, Hero Arts sparkle & Wow white embossing powder, Paper Smooches birch tree & MFT wonky stitch rectangle dies, Memory Box winter tiny snowflakes stencil, Zig clean colour brush markers, Winsor & Newton iridescent medium, Imagine Crafts Sparkle shimmer spritz, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

Love how you got all the elements of Cornelia's card, but made it your own! So glad you joined us at MCV this week!

I love that HA reindeer! I ordered that set once with a gift certificate I'd won and they sent me snowmen instead. :( Ill just enjoy it through your adorable card instead. :) And we can swap places for a while if you like. After a gorgeous, cool start to the week the heat is back on. Blech!
