OK I started this card 2 weeks ago but due to pain and personal crap I was not able to do any cards until today. I feel great creating some cards. I love this die cut and made this style before...I can make cards galore!



Various green papers, dye colours in greens, sponge, sizzex machine, embossing folder, star stamp, evergreen stamp, cute reindeer stamp, holly stamp, clear versamark pad and clear embossing powder, celery dye pad, green sparkle embossing powder and green embossing powder, Merry Christmas stamp, green marker, copper border stickers, Chalks.

Oh how much fun this was to create:) So I used this really neat cardstock that has some glisten to it and can appear green or brown depending how you match it up. I have this nice green paper that has a nice gloss but is not mirrored. I took white paper and sponged it in various shades of green and then stamped the evergreen and stars on it and heat embossed it in clear. I took a deep hunter green dye pad and rolled the green onto the card and just rubbed off the dark green so the image of what I stamped showed through. The sizzex machine came out again to cut the paper where Mr. Reindeer is on and highlighted the edges with a green glitter pen. I shall call this reindeer Herschel. Now Herschel was stamped in apricot brown dye pad and the leaves were done in green and then green sparkle was used to heat emboss it.  I took a sheet of white and sponged it in greens and then used the sizzex to emboss it.  The leaves were embossed with the green glitter and then fussy cut and adhered to the card under the oval paper piece. I finished it off with copper border stickers.

On The inside, I took white paper and did some sponging around the edges and then stamped the Merry Christmas words in green embossing powder. I finished it off with the border stickers and a holly which I also fussy cut after stamping it with green glitter. Now I think this is manly enough even with some glitter. Have a great week!

  2. Awesome cards! I love the texture on them. And the deer head on that second one is pretty adorable. So I will confirm - I would totally give this to someone I care about, glitter or not. (And I hate glitter)

  5. Wonderful cards once again! The ornament on the first card looks just like the one of the ornaments that my grandma had on her tree. (Which were then on my parents' tree and then on my tree until broken by wagging tails hitting branches or other such things). so glad that you're feeling better and back to doing enjoyable things!

  11. You had me going there for a minute, Brigit. I panicked, thinking I'd missed 2015 and was already at December! Stop that. I almost had a coronary.

    Lovely work, of course. Are you doing Easter ones?
