Hero Arts Christmas Reindeer - a final Christmas card

Hi blogging friends Free Smiley Courtesy of

I have decided to post one last Christmas card whilst it is still technically Christmas season.

The image was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils and a paintbrush.  I stamped some snowflakes which are from the same Reindeer set around the image with Versacolor Polar Blue pigment ink and added silver rhinestones to the centres.

Here is a close-up of the reindeer - isn't he adorable? 

The side panel was embossed with a Basic Grey/Sizzix Snowflakes #8 embossing folder and my Big Shot.  I added the organza ribbon in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.

I added some Kaisercraft Crystal Sparklets to the bottom RHS.  LOVE this new Sparklet range by Kaisercraft!  Here is a wee close-up - I tried to capture some of the sparkle from the sunlight (I always take my photos outside).  They look just like diamonds!!


I am entering my card in the following challenges -
