2010 Christmas Card #1

Shew, I have almost all my Christmas Cards done! 2 years ago, I made all the same card. B-O-R-I-N-G!!!! Last year I made 75 different cards. EXHAUSTING! This year I'm making 10 or so of 4 or 5 different designs. JUST RIGHT! Here's my first one.

Obviously, this is a Michelle Zindorf inspired piece. To make the main panel, I masked the snow area, brayered the sky (first in lighter blue and then just a tad of darker blue), stamped the trees and removed the mask. Next I stamped the deer into position. Just a tad of inking around the edges of the panel. All that was left to do was stamp the images onto the card base and assemble. It went much faster than I expected.

Stamps: SU Dasher, SU Lovely as a Tree, Papertrey Ink Damask Designs
Paper: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Baja Breeze, and eek, I can’t remember….was it Pacific Point and Night of Navy???
Accessories: Stamp-a-majig
