"12 Cards of Christmas - Card 10"
One of my favourite dies is "Reindeer Flight", and it was used to diecut a reindeer from cat food box with embossed silver card stuck on with PVA. The deer was decorated with a "Merry Chroistmas" stamp in archival ink, a length of red tinsel for a garland, and a tiny clear gem for an eye. I found the background card in my local craft shop - fab thick white card embossed with "MERRY CHRISTMAS". It was decorated with distress inks, and a white gel pen used to highlight one of the "Merry Christmas" sentiments. I drew some scribbles all over with a Quickie glue pen and added some flowersoft (a sachet from a magazine freebie!). I've never used flowersoft before, but this polar white makes fantastic snow.
A rectangle of acetate was embossed with a dotty folder (the dots were lined up carefully for the second and third passes so there were no obvious joins, since the acetate was much larger than my embossing folder). Lastly, the acetate was embossed with a Christmas Tree folder, carefully positioned to avoid the reindeer in the scene, and fixed in place with four jewel brads and washers begged from hubby's tool box!
My husband liked this one so much he's bagsied it for Christmas :)
