Tis' the Season to Believe


Sometimes when I sit down and stamp an idea just occurs.  I was actually stamping another card when I got the idea for this one.  I thought it would be so neat to have a few reindeer flying up into the snowy sky.  I even added some sparkle to the lead reindeer.  The sentiment is from Sweet Serendipity, but I inked it up to only have the portion I wanted to use. 

To make this card I started with a Basic Black base and then added 3 layers alternating Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla.  The top Sahara sand layer was started by stamping the reindeer in Sahara Sand ink.  I then added the reins with a Creamy Caramel marker, and as I sit here typing I remember that I actually have a Sahara Sand marker, just not in the case.  Oh, well, the Creamy Caramel works out as well.  From the reindeer I stamped the trees from Lovely as a Tree in Versamark.  I then heat set Heat and Stick powder and followed it up with Dazzling Diamonds.  This is actually my favorite way to add glitter to a project.  I then added my snowflakes in Whisper White craft ink.  I have a note to myself to order the Very Vanilla as I don’t currently own it.  I then sponged the egdes to soften it. 

I just wish you can see the actual card.  The glitter sparkles perfectly and there is just the right amount of texture to it.  I hope you get the idea though. 

Have a fantastic Wednesday!  Only a few days left until the weekend!
