Cheery and Bright

Hi Everyone! I hope you have most of your cards and shopping finished! I know it must be a mad house out there today. I am staying in where it is warm and cozy. Our weather here turned cold and rainy today. I want to share a Christmas card I made. I still might need several more before it is all said and done!

I am a true layer person when it comes to cards and it is hard for me to keep everything flat for mailing, but I am trying! The reindeer is popped up though, but should be able to be mailed okay.

I stamped the reindeer using brown ink. I then colored over it with my Versa Marker and added Brown Fizz embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. All the other dies were cut from white glitter card stock. I used an embossing folder on the brown piece and inked the raised areas with Versa mark ink to enhance the design.

Here is a closer look where you can see more of the sparkle on the white glitter card stock.

Dies Used:

Create A Flake Five -- Spellbinders
Fancy Tags -- Spellbinders
Debutante Frame Base -- Die-Versions
Orchard Tree Frame -- Die-Versions

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Great use of using the PP, April! who would have thought of using the stripes to give a better feel of a cold forest? YOU, of course! LOL great card in every way. Like you, I have trouble keeping things flat, too, but I'm learning! You did a wonderful job here!

now my other hat: Thanks for playing in the Scrapy Land Challenge using die cuts! I hope to see more of your pretty projects in the next challenge, too! hugs and blessings, de {Creative Smiles}
