Christmas in Blue...

Happy Friday,

Its back to normal with a Christmas Friday I really must get a start on my mums card! lol

Ive chose one of my favourite stamps from my Christmas range the leaping reindeer created in a different way!


I stared by stamping the reindeer in perfect medium onto heat emboss able acetate.  I added detail silver shine cosmic shimmer embossing powder and get set this.  I then added cobalt PVA dimensional glue into the space left by the embossing.







Once dry (leave this overnight to get a proper dry finish) I turned the piece over so that the blue shows through neatly.  I then added frosted sky PVA at random intervals on the front as snow along with some smaller dots of the cobalt PVA.





I framed the piece using a frame made with the noble double pierced dies set A and B in bright white and cobalt foundation card.  I added the whole piece to a background embossed with the twinkle star A4 embossing folder along with some layers of cobalt and white.


I made up a bow of silver white and blue and added a pearl heart in the centre.  The sentiment, from the same set, is stamped in silver on a silver pierced tag backed with a cobalt tag.



A different colour Christmas card but its my favourite so why not!!

Enjoy...

  1. Fabulous card. Being a member of the Stag Owners Club it's traditional for us to send Stag (reindeer) cards at Christmas so I'm always looking for a new idea.
    Have a great day.
    Happy crafting.

  25. Really like this card the blue reindeer is different but so effective and as others have wrote the pva dots really look good. Been away to Maderia for two weeks so did not manage to watch your shows live been viewing them yesterday. I enjoy your demos you always explain so well what you are doing and why. Have a good weekend. Kind regards Sandra.😊

  30. Hi John. I really love this card but I don't know if I am being a bit thick, but I can't work out how you have done the PVA dots. Did you put them straight onto the acetate?
