Day 9- A Hero Arts Reindeer Themed Christmas Card

For today's card I was excited to finally use my adorable reindeer stamps by Hero Arts that I bought a few years back.  The Holiday Cheer cling stamps come as a fun set with coordinating sizzix dies.

For this card I wanted to capture a sense of movement so I decided to have them leaping around a snowy globe of sorts.  To get three to fit on a card though I had to switch to a larger 7x5 card base. I couldn't find just the right sentiment to capture the mood of these happy guys so I created my own on my Silhouette Cameo with red vinyl (and my printer).

To color my little guys I cut 6 of them, stamping 3 with a black Memento Ink and coloring in with Copic Markers.  For the other 3, I stamped them again with red and green pigment ink, cutting off the bodies and layering over my other images.  Since the sweater portion of the image is solid this is a great way to escape being forced to have a gray sweater.  I finished off my card with some Stickles glitter glue over the polka-dots for a little sparkle.

Supplies Used:
  • Cardstock- Bazzill (navy), Neenah (solar white)
  • Stamps & matching Dies-Hero Arts / Sizzix Holiday Cheer
  • Ink-Memento (tuxedo black), Colorbox Pigment (Moss Green, Cranberry)
  • Pens- Copic
  • Red Vinyl-Silhouette
  • Fonts-KG As The Deer & KG Love You Through It
  • Glitter-Stickles “Frosted Lace”
  • Red Rhinestones-Kaisercraft
I can't help but smile when I see these reindeer.  I hope they bring you holiday cheer!  :)
