Elzybells Reindeer Peace On Earth

Hi there!
Long time no see, huh? Sorry about that.
Life has been so crazy busy, and I've had zero
time to craft -- that is, until today!
I had today off, so I decided to start my
Christmas cards. I put on some Christmas tunes,
parked my butt in the chair and set to work.

Aren't those the sweetest little reindeer ever?
They're from Elzybells. I'm so sad that I didn't
discover this wonderful company sooner -- as they
closed their doors at the end of September.

I colored them in with Copics, then added a little
glossy accents to the pudding frosting and their noses
and hoofs. Hooves? Whichever. Then I masked them
off with Inkadinkado masking paper, added another strip
to cover the bottom area for snow, then distressed the
sky with Tumbled Glass distress ink by Ranger.

I stamped my sentiment by The Paper Studio,
then used stickles to make my snow line and
snowflakes in the sky. I rounded the corners using
the We R Memory Keepers 1/4" corner chomper.

To assemble my card, I used green Bazzill
cardstock topped with two prints from the
Basic Grey Jovial 6x6 pad. So pretty!
I covered the seam with a bit of yarn from
the packaging of my last Lawn Fawn order
and popped my focal piece off with dimensionals.

I'll be entering this in the Wee Memories Challenge #31.
Go here to check out the other talented artists
and enter a card of your own!

I hope you enjoyed my first Christmas card!
I plan to be back tomorrow with some
Lawn Fawn Critters In The Snow cuteness.

Have a great night!
