what another reindeer...
Another sample from my shows this week with the Papercuts dies tomorrow will be the Gold and Black card that I have received so many emails about promise!
These dies are so easy to use and make creations from that all the work in this one is in the background! I simply cut the reindeer die three time one each in black, bright white and rich red and set them against each other as a shadow! I added them to a piece of card covered in double sided adhesive and added the runs silver mica flakes over the exposed adhesive.
I made the background by embossing a piece of card to which I had spray glued kitchen foil with the comtempory poinsettia A4 embossing folder. I then added the new graphite gilding polish to highlight the embossing ( so much easier than using an ink pad!)
A few layers of black white and red along with a border of the mica flakes and the simple card was finished. It being me I added a large bow made with double sided contrast ribbon ( available from www.juliawattscrafts.co.uk with a black crystal embellishment and a twist of 4mm gold metallic linx.
