Jingle All the Way

Well, hello, again, Re-Inkers!  It's Andrea back to share a fun Christmas card featuring the oh-so-adorable reindeer from Pretty Pink Posh's Reindeer Friends set.

Sometimes I like to imagine story lines for my cards.  For this card, poor Rudolph has been hard at work wrapping and stacking presents for Christmas Eve while the other reindeer enjoy a game of leap frog over his hard work.  Not cool, I say, but so darn cute!

All of the images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.  To create the stack of presents, I first created masks from Stamping Masking Paper.  Once I had all of my presents stamped, I masked them to work on my background, which I created with Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks.

After everything was colored, I added details with a white gel pen and lots of sparkle with clear Wink of Stella (I know, big surprise, right?).  I also added just a dab of Glossy Accents to Rudolph's nose.  I heat-embossed in gold a sentiment from Reindeer Friends and adhered the background to a black card.  Those adorable deer were popped up with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by!  For all of my American friends, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
