little red reindeer!!

stamps: magnolia reindeer tilda & the stocking (not sure what this is actually called), stampin up! more merry messages &distressed dots
inks: memento (tuxedo black), archival ink (vermillion &jet black), promarkers in various colours
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock & 5x7 card blank
extra: cosmic shimmer iridescent watercolour paint (yellow sun)

so it's that time of year... meaning another Christmas card from me!! again, I kept this one simple, using just the red with a touch of brown for the  sack. the image and dots add a sense of fun and keep things cute and girly. the background was stamped in two stages, even though the stamp is a large one for backgrounds, the 5X7 card was just too big!! the girl was stamped onto the sack to give her a base to sit on. this meant using a masking technique as I used two stamps to create the look . I then cut her out and layered her up using various depths of foam pads for a 3D effect (this could also be done using silicone, but remember this makes it heavier to posting!!) i also added pearlescent paint to the bells. I think its these little touches that just create a more professional finish, which, for me, is especially important when keeping things simple.
