Cards und More Advent With Friends - Day 23

Hi everyone! :o)

I was so happy and honored that my dear friend Fikreta of Bad Kitty's Craft Room invited me to join a super fun and inspirational Advent With Friends event over at Cards und More blog.

I love CAS (clean and simple) cards, so I went with CAS card for this event too and created this 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)

I stamped the reindeer on a white watercolor paper and colored him in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the reindeer, traced edges with black marker, stamped another reindeer on a piece of white cardstock paper, colored him in black, fussy cut him leaving thin white border around him, and glued colored reindeer over the black colored one. I did this because the watercolor paper I use is very thin and I needed thicker image for my card.

Then I heat embossed in white the sentiment on a Kraft cardstock panel and glued the panel on a white side folded card base.

Lastly, I glued some foam squares on the back of the reindeer, placed him on card and my card was finished. :o)
