I hope all my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and loved ones. I have so much to be thankful for including my followers who have showed their loyalty and support. After taking a few days off from work and blogging I was able to get my house cleaned, do some shopping and stamping.
I think this is one of my favorite Christmas cards so far this year. I pulled out a Sizzix reindeer die and ran it through the Big Shot using grungeboard (I just love this stuff). I painted the reindeer with Adirondack Gold Acrylic Paint then distressed the edges with a sanding block and sponged Distress Vintage Photo. A little bow was created from 1/8" burgundy silk ribbon with a jingle bell hung from linen thread. His eye is a Kaiser black pearl and, of course, we needed a red rhinestone for the nose.
The gorgeous background paper is Father Christmas by BoBunny. It is adhered to a cocoa card. The sentiment was stamped on Kraft paper using VersaMark then Early Espresso ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.
On a piece of Kraft paper the inside sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso and embossed with clear embossing powder. A few snowflakes from Stampers Anonymous were embossed in gold.
I hope my card today puts you in the holiday spirit! I will be joining Make It Monday and Stampin' for the Weekend. I'll see you on Tuesday for tea :-)
