Reindeer Dancing

Hello.  Welcome.  This morning the sun is shining and I felt all jingle bells.  I remembered that over at Wnter Wonderland the challenge is Scandanavian Christmas and since I am in Norway I decided I must join in.   Also Craftyhazelnut's theme is Do you hear what I hear? which I think is very cute.  So I had to find a little bell for my reindeer.  It's real.  It rings.  Not sure what the postman will make of that......


I used STAMPlorations sketch for my design.  I wanted some red and white patterned paper so after a search found this one from Dovecraft Eastern Promise collection.  I thought it looked a bit like clouds and would suit my flying reindeer.  It needed a bit of bling so I added glitter glue.  I edged my white base card and the paper panels with DI Barn Door.  The reindeer is Sizzix Reindeer #2.  It comes with a matching embossing folder and I highlighted the embossed areas with Barn Door.  I added a piece of red ribbon and the tiny bell.  I die cut a reindeer from white foam as well to give more dimension.  The sentiment is an Anita's stamp embossed with red embossing powder.

  6. Hi Iona - beautiful Christmas card! By the way - Brusho paints are pigment crystals that come in a little container and you can sprinkle the crystals on watercolor paper and then mist it with water. It gives you quite amazing effects....
