Reindeer Romp

These sparkly reindeer are kicking up their heels and running through the snow on a wintery day.  Don't look for a stamp--nope, these reindeer are from the Design Adhesives collection.  

I pressed gold designer foil (shiny side up) onto the sticky image to transfer the foil.  After doing so, I noticed tiny blank areas where the foil didn't completely cover the image so I added some ultra fine gold glitter which filled in those tiny crevices.  What a happy discovery--the reindeer are now foiled and glittered!  


   I layered the beautiful "First Snowfall" from the Mistletoe collection over a white notecard and added the green ribbon to resemble gift wrapping.  The wired gold trim was wrapped tightly around a slim paintbrush handle to achieve the "corkscrew" effect and secured behind the reindeer panel with glue dots.


 As you can tell all that sparkle and shine is a little hard to photograph well.  But here is another happy discovery...the left over foil makes a great design element too!


I plan on using this remnant for another project.  Nothing goes to waste in my studio! Do you find yourself saving scraps too?  

 I hope you're planning your Christmas cards now and this card gives you some inspiration!  Thanks for visiting our blog today--it's good to know you're dropping by!
