Holiday Card Series 2017 Card 1

Hi friends!  I am starting my Holiday Card Series for 2017 and wanted to share my first card with you.  I am using the Reindeer Roll Call stamp set from Newton's Nook.  I think this set is a great one for doing quick cards for the holidays when you need them.

I started out by die cutting a piece of white card stock with the Mama Elephant Grid Die - this is one of my favorites recently.  Then, I stamped all three deer images in alternating colors of ink onto each square.  It is a very traditional looking card with these colors.

To bump up things, I decided to stamp the main image of the reindeer names in Versa Mark ink and then coated it in my favorite Brass embossing powder from Hero Arts.  I wanted the edges to have that same look of embossing powder, so I took my Versa MarkER and went along the edges then just dunked the vellum piece into the powder, and heat to set.  This will serve two purposes - to give that finished look, but to also have a disguise if you will for my adhesive so it won't be visible once adhered to the card.

To finish up my card, I stamped a sentiment on the inside (unfortunately this is discontinued).

All supplies used are listed/linked below as well as the video tutorial - see you soon for card #2!
