Happy Holidays Deer!

Hi everyone!

Jenny here with a fun holiday card using non-traditional colours featuring a cool stamp from the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection. BRI carries all of this collection which also includes some co-ordinating papers, stickers, and other embellishments to play with. 

I have a video showing the full detail on how I created this card over on my channel on YouTube:

To create the card I applied my powder tool onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and stamped the three snowflakes from the set all over in Versamark ink. I heat embossed in white embossing powder.  I then die cut a heart from masking paper using a Hero Arts Infinity Heart die and adhered it to the embossed panel.

I then ink blended using my mini blending tool three colours of Hero Arts Dye ink (Bubblegum, Ultra Pink and Soft Pink) over the top and removed the mask.  I trimmed down the panel slightly and adhered it to a 110lb white card base.   I then stamped out the reindeer and the bird in copic friendly black ink and coloured in with my copics (I used BG000, BG13, BG11, RV13, RV10).

I heat embossed the sentiment from the kit using Versarmark and sparkly embossing powder. I used WOW! Cloud 9 but a very similar powder is the Silver glitter powder (Cloud 9 has a few more colour specs in it). I fussy cut out the sentiment, and used my ScanNCut to cut out the images and then popped them up on foam tape. As a finishing touch I used Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard for some subtle sparkle.

That's it! Non-traditional holiday colours and such a super cute must have stamp set!

Have a wonderful holiday season everyone!
