Sweet Stampin' - Stars

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Anyhoo, it's Saturday and Sweet Stampinday - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our easy theme this week is 'Stars' - so simple make a project and include stars on it and or course a stamped elements.

So for my card this week I'm sharing a card I made for my hubbie for Christmas. I've been watching to show off these fun guys but there was never an appropriate them until today. These little characters are from Bugaboo and the image is called 'Make it Snappy - Reindeer Trio', and I coloured them with Copic pens....and no glitter. Lol

Here's What I Did
First I matted and layered my card blank with a piece of patterned paper. Then using a software program I added a sentiment in the space below the digital stamp of the trio of reindeers and more stars, this was then printed out 3 times.

I die cut one of the images into a square and introduced shading around and behind the reindeers using Copic pens. Using the 2 remaining image I coloured portions of each of the reindeer in, using my pens. The coloured sections were then cut out and added to the base image using foam pads. The competed image was then matted and layered, and added to the card blank.

To finish off I added Glossy Accents to the reindeer's eyes and Crystal Drops to the antler decorations.
