Christmas Reindeer

This card was made for work, well sort of, I was trying to explain the uses of Versamark ink to a work collegue, explaining that you can use it as a watermark or use embossing powder with it and said I was do a couple of samples, so I did the samples of each then got carried away in making this one into a card.
After cutting the layers of patterned paper I distressed the edges with a red distress ink and a sponge.


Attention to detail...

The ribbon is a two toned ribbon in red and green from a local Craft shop.



You can see on the image below how I picked out the dotted swirl from the patterned paper and used stickles glitter glue to make it pop, you can aslo see the green nailhead at the edge of the punched out point.


Stamp - Papermania


Patterned Paper- Graphic 45


Border Punch -Martha Stewart


embelishments - Stickles Glitter glue and nail head gems from my stash


Card - Papermill shop


Ink - Ranger Distress Ink Red Brick
