Christmas Reindeer

tisdag 8 oktober 2013

Hi everyone!
Thanks so much for visiting me today! First, I made a card that I was not at all happy with. I thought it was too much dots, and too little border around the card. Also, I had stamped a few snowflakes that felt all wrong. So I simply made a new one, and here you see the result.

The problem was to remove the reindeer from the first card, the glue stuck very well, I must admit. Finally it loosened but unfortunately also a piece of the leg on the reindeer came off, and part of the reindeer antlers.
So here is the poor mistreated reindeer, luckily you can´t see it so good if you don´t look closely.

I embossed him with three layer silver embossing pouder and then stamped into it while the third coat was still soft with a text stamp. I placed him so that it looks like he is heading out of the "picture".
Have a great day everyone!
Hugs, Birgit

Så flott kort! Liker dette enkle designet veldig godt, og så ekstra elegant det blir når alt går i hvitt med litt sølv!

I love your card and have picked up a new idea from you (stamping into wet embossing) so thank you for that! I'm a sucker for reindeer and never would have noticed any "issues" with you removing yours from another card. Thanks for joining in with us this month at Stamping Sensations. Maddy x

It seems as if there´s a little misunderstanding about my card. I'm sorry if my English is not good enough to explain things. The first card I made is not "old", as if it was made ​​a week / years ago. It was made one hour before, it was my first attempt that I was not at all happy with, and then I made a new one. I'm so sorry for my English which could be better...
