Stampin' Up Dasher - a quick and simple Christmas card

Hi blogging friends Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I have made up a couple of quick and simple cards which are easy to mass produce and not too bulky for mailing overseas.  This first one has no colouring and uses one of my favourite stamps by Stampin' Up called 'Dasher'.  I will share my other cards in a later post.



I stamped Dasher with Colorbox Sapphire Silk pigment ink, poured on some Satin Pearl clear embossing powder and heat-set it with my heat-gun.  I added a tiny red rhinestone to his nose so I guess my 'Dasher' has now become 'Rudolph'!! 

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear set called 'Snowman Christmas' and was stamped and heat-embossed using the same ink and embossing powder.  Love the font on this sentiment!!  The designer paper I stamped on is by Little Yellow Bicycle - Delightful Collection - Blue lace.

The main image panel is up on dimensionals.  That's about it - nice and simple.

Challenges:

I am popping my card into the following challenge -

The ABC Challenge - E is for Embossing - can be heat or dry embossing

Thanks for stopping by!
