Anything Goes Challenge # 77 Animals
Hi Blogging Friends
I'm back today with a card for the new challenge at Anything Goes... this time our theme is Animals.... so as I figured a reindeer is an animal, I could start my Christmas cards! I know I'm a late starter in terms of a lot of other card makers... but what the heck... I'm here now!!
I used a beautiful stamp from Stampin Up... but I'm not totally sure it's still available as I've had it over a year I think. I stamped and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.. onto plain white card. I added a few gems to his antlers.... obviously he's a very well dressed reindeer and has his love of bling!!
I then used a couple of nesties for the circles... with silver mirri card (seems such a long time since I used mirri). Then I used a gorgeous embossing folder for the panel - with more mirri card as a layer. The sentiment was computer generated... if anyone wants to know the fonts I used, I can dig them out... just ask.
So there you go... quite plain and simple... but hopefully effective. Not easy tho to photograph and keep the silver showing... it looks a dark grey but I promise you he's silver!
Do pop over to the main challenge blog HERE to check out my fab teamies creations.... there really are some stunners! And don't forget, lots of crafting items can be purchased from Lynne at The Card Den HERE.
I'm getting excited this week as it's the Papercraft Show at Harrogate this weekend.... it's only a few miles from me, and I meet up with some lovely blogging buddies...... so can't wait! But someone better hold my purse........ hehe!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting
