Lili Of The Valley - Festive Reindeer

 Hello everyone

On my blog today I'm sharing my latest card using a new Lili Of The Valley Christmas digi stamp and sentiments, they're are from a selection of images being released in the next week or so. The stamp I have used today is called 'Festive Reindeer', and I teamed it up with the sentiment 'Happy Christmas'. The reindeers are so cute, I really enjoyed colouring up these little guy. I used masking to add a inky background behind them, then teamed them up with a striped background created by me. The links will be added after the launch has taken place. I hope you like it. x (For Sale - £4.50 + P&P - email me for more info).

For your information, here is the link to the LOTV Etsy Store to check out all the digi stampsand the LOTV online store to check out the rest of their goodies.

Here's What I Did
First I added I created the striped background paper for the card. Using a stripe die set I cut lots of pieces of coloured card - white, deep blue, pale blue, pale green, green and silver glitter card. I glued the strips horizontally onto a piece of thin card to create my design, then die cut the rectangle out on a jaunty angle. The striped paper was glued flat onto the card front. 

Using my graphics software I imported the sweet little reindeer image along with the sentiment, then resized them both to fit my project. The image and sentiment were printed directly onto colouring cardstock and die cut into an oval. The image was printed out again onto masking paper, and fussy cut out leaving a large section beneath the reindeers for the snowy area. I covered over the reindeers and tree etc and added distressing inks to the sky (see the list and order below). When the ink was dry I added stars to the sky with a stencil and white ink to add a little more interest. 

When everything was dry I coloured the image using Copic pens and added snowflakes to the sky with a white pen. The finished picture was mounted onto a silver glittery oval, and funky foam was glued to the back. The complete topper was added to the front of the card. To finish the card I added a little glitter to the baubles, snow and star along with a few pearls.
