Reindeer Fly

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Hi Friends! I'm back. And, this time I have a Christmas card to share with you. I wish I could take credit for the fabulous layout of this card, but I can't--it's from the Week 2 Viva la Verve November 2011 Sketch Challenge. It's such a classic design. I'll definitely be using it again. :)

I've made previous unsuccessful attempts to use the Out of the Box technique, but this time I think I finally figured out my problem. The technique worked great with the reindeer, and I love how his antlers extend beyond the circle. I added Diamond Stickles to the snowflakes on his body, Lime Green Stickles to his antlers, and Xmas Red Stickles along the edge of the circle. The gold dots in the corners of the embossed bg are from a Pearl Pen. The edge of the green Labels One Spellbinders die-cut layer is paper pierced.

On the inside, I used Classic Ric Rac Edgebilities dies to cut the neutral layer and backed it with green dp. I love the sentiment, and this is the perfect day to use it--we're supposed to get our first bit of snow here tonight. :)

I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow. Stay warm!
