Sleigh Ride Reindeer

Today I have a reindeer card for you using the Flourishes Sleigh Ride Set.  On a piece of Cherry Cobbler I stamped the Silent Night Sheet Music in VersaMark and embossed it with gold embossing powder and a heat gun.  The edges were sponged in Distressed Vintage Photo.

I stamped the reindeer on a Spellbinders Labels Eight #3 die in VersaMark and embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I colored the image with Prismacolor markers in Eggshell and Mocha Light.  Sponging was done around the edges in Distressed Antique Linen.  I just had to add a red rhinestone to Rudolph's nose!

Before adhering the reindeer to my Cherry Cobbler paper I added a piece of 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in Always Artichoke with some vintage jingle bells.

Since I had room in the corner I stamped a few holly leaves from the Joy set in Always Artichoke and colored them with a Mellow Moss marker.  The berries were stamped in Cherry Cobbler with some Crystal Effects for dimension.

Everything was mounted to a textured Always Artichoke card.  Now, I don't know if I can part with this card!

A closer look at the reindeer.

Hi Donna
I always learn so much when you show your cards and like the idea of tying some bells on.

This is such a pretty card and I really like that background stamp. I know I've said that before, but it really just stands out when embossed. And I love your reindeer. Too cute!
