Elegant Reindeer

Hello my crafting friends, I hope this finds you all well? Well here we are now in the second month of the year already, doesn't time fly?

Maureen  it's lovely to hear from you as it is from everyone, you are missed. Don't worry if you missed posts they will still be there lol! I love hearing from everyone, sadly I don't have much time to comment on others posts anymore. So do please keep commenting whenever you can.

I am back with more Christmas cards, I have managed to make more so far this year than I ever did last year lol! 

For this card I actually started by cutting out the Bauble from a piece of card I had painted with Aquatints landscape using the Darkest Blue, I then ran it through the reindeer forest embossing folder.

I already had the reindeer die cut in my stash, I had cut it out with double sided adhesive then coated it in glamour dust.

I cut a piece of card big enough to fit the bauble onto, placed more double sided adhesive on it and ran it through a snowflake embossing folder, I removed the outer sheet and again covered in glamour dust, sadly this lost all the detail of the snowflake embossing. I matted this onto some Dark Blue hammer card and put it to one side.

I made an 8x8 square card out of two sheets of Dark Blue hammer card, cut to size some White card to fit on top then ran this through the Christmas time embossing folder, I attached this on top of the Blue card then placed my reindeer bauble on top in the center. 

To finish the card I made a little sentiment and placed this at the bottom of the card as seen.
