..... had a very shiny nose....

The reindeer stamp I've used on this card is one of my very favourite Christmas stamps. It was a magazine freebie several years ago - it's so sweet without being fussily cute, and lends itself beautifully to colouring.


Today I've stamped and heat-embossed it, and then coloured it in with Promarkers apart from the nose and the robin's breast, which I have made very shiny using Tonertex pen and cold foil, which you can buy from Foil Play.

The printed paper panel is made using the paper left over from a sheet I printed out for this card and the embossed snowflake panel is done using a Darice embossing folder and Core-dinations card. After embossing, I sanded the pattern lightly and then smooshed a glue pad over the top and sprinkled it with white glitter. I can seldom get sparkle to show up in photos, so you will have to take my word for it, it is actually VERY sparkly.

The sentiment is cut with the Tonic die "Sparkle and Shine" - which sums up the sparkly snowflakes and little Rudolph's Very Shiny Nose!
