I sent a Christmas Card #1

Isn't that a cool title, I sent a Christmas Card...

I made this one using two stamp sets from My Favorite Things and they are called Christmas Cuteness and Jingle all the Way.

 I started off with 110 pound Cream card stock and used my embossing powder tool to coat the card stock before stamping the reindeer in VersaMark ink.
 I would stamp a few and then add some Zing embossing powder on them in the color Chestnut.

This allows me to see where I have already stamped since Versamark is a clear sticky ink.
 I used my heat tool to melt and set the powder tell it is shiny.

I cut the card stock bigger because I plan to die cut the panel with a stiched die.
I am using the Kuretake watercolor set to color in the reindeers.

I used number 47 and 30 for the reindeer.
 Don't worry about that mess up on one of the noses I will cover that up with my sentiment.
 I am using Ranger embossing powder in the color Gold on the same card stock as my base.
 I decided to add some gold splatter to the back ground to bring in some shine, I used number 91 for that.
 I stamped and embossed the inside in the same colors I used on the out side.
 I tried to add some gold thread but I did not like it so I took it off.

Easy to try things and remove them if they are not all they way glued down.

I also put the main panel on foam and the sentiment as well.

I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out the reindeer back ground once it was completly dry.

 Stamping the back of the card and the back of the envelope.
I added a embossed reindeer to the front of the card as well.
