Merry & Bright




Happy 4th of July! Here is a quick share before I am off to mom's for a picnic. I made these cards last night for Sparkle N Sprinkle and it works for Kathy's blog candy share.


The first card I created by cutting a circle out of some Lasting Impressions CS , stamping and embossing the reindeer to the inside of card. I created a overlay panel using some red linen stock that I punch out using my mega scallop punch , layered under a panel I embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss dotsl. I masked off wording placing in different color 3/4" circles and topped the circles with matching bubble stickers. To the ribbons I added some minature bells I purchased at local hobby store. The reindeer was colored with glitter markers and Copic markers.


On the second card, never having played with attaching crystals before; I asked several persons and decided to attach them with Aleene's Tacky glue which seems to have worked out real good. To create I stamped and embossed reindeer on panels I cut to 1 1/4. I colored them with Copic markers added some glitter and Ranger Glossy Accents to ornaments and topped with some Bridal white glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. After everything dried I embossed edge and layered onto red and green card stock.


If traveling today be safe, enjoy your 4th of July festivities with your family and friends. Thanks for stopping by.

Love it! Super cute. But reindeer ARE my favorite! Is it just me, or does that reindeer look scarily similar to Scooby-Do? ;)
