It is Shirley posting today. It sure is starting to look a lot like Christmas. I see Christmas lights everywhere I go and there is so much hustle and bustle going on in the stores with everyone doing their shopping.
I have another Christmas card to share with you today. I really like how it turned out, but I was not real pleased with the photograph. I have a hard time getting a good picture when I use foil paper/card stock. I have fluorescent lights in my craft area and it really creates a shine. I went out on the sun porch to take the picture and it really helped. I still have just a touch of shine on the reindeer, but it was the best I could do. If you have any tips that might help me with this, please let me know.
I used a black card base and added a layer of shiny gold sticker paper that had stars on it. I added white card stock and then a layer of gold snowflake vellum. I cut the reindeer with the same gold paper using the Sue Wilson Deer Family Festive Collection.
I cut the ornament using the Memory Box Cabrini Ornament. I used black, silver and gold paper to give my card an elegant look. I added the snowflake using the Impression Obsession Small Snowflake Set.
The sentiment was gold embossed using the Impression Obsession Christmas Sentiments Stamp set. I added black poinsettias using the PoppyStamps Small Blooming Poinsettia die.
I added the elements to my card using the Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive. I honestly love this adhesive.
For the finishing touch, I added Silver Rhinestones to the ornament and the poinsettias. I added a Brown Rhinestone for the reindeer eye.
I am happy you dropped by to see us today. I hope you enjoyed the card. Come back and visit again, soon.
