Merry Christmas Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #158)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge started at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog, our last challenge this year.

Our theme for this fortnight is #158, Hangeschriebener Winter / Handwritten Winter. Make a winter project with handwritten sentiment. You are also allowed to use sentiment stamp that looks like handwritten.

This time our lucky winner will win these two clear stamps. :o)

And here is what I came up with: CAS (clean and simple), Merry Christmas Card. :o)

For my card I used ADORABLE reindeer from Mama Elephant 'Reindeer Games' stamp set and sentiment from  Apple Blossom 'Happy Santa' stamp set.

Image is paper pieced. First I stamped a sentiment and reindeer directly on a top folded card base and colored the reindeer with black marker. Then I stamped the reindeer on a watercolor paper, colored him in watercolor technique with Distress Inks, fussy cut, colored edges with black marker and softened him with stylus ball. Lastly, I glued the colored reindeer over the reindeer stamped on the card base, covered his muzzle and medallion on his collar with gloss resin to create glossy accents and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 95 mm x 133 m(3 3/4" x 5 1/4")
