Dasher in the snow


A Happy Tuesday to everyone.  It's all biz biz biz just now.  I really appreciate you taking the time out to come visit.  Thanks.

Well we did dress our tree at the weekend and we are well and truly "Santified".  Originally I was only going to do the tree but my children had other ideas and got into my box of ornaments. Then they were off round the house.  I keep finding Santas, snowmen, polar bears popping up all round the house!




This is a card that I've prepared for my card class this afternoon and thought it also falls into the LESS IS MORE theme this week which is to add bling.

I've made two cards the one above is is in the CAS style.  Dasher stands proudly above some twinkly snow and has some sparkly rhinestones in his antlers.  Maybe my kids got to him too!

The second card is for my class and I've rollered some snowflakes to make a background.  He still stands proudly above a twinkly snowbank but no gems in the antlers this time as I don't think he needs it with the busier background.

Here's the details of the cards.

Both have Basic Black card bases and Dasher is stamped in Basic Black onto Whisper White and mounted onto Real Red card with Real Red ribbon running behind him.  I then tied another small piece of ribbon the make a knotted bow.  Merry has been stamped from Pennant Parade.  I then tore some Whisper White to make the snowbank under Dasher and covered it with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  The snowflake card was made using a roller, Bold Snowflakes (retired) and Whisper White ink.  

Hope your day goes well.  Ta Ta for now. x

Hi Aileen, Fabulous, I love both versions but the CAS just pips the more ornate, just by a whisker!!!It's very classy and dramatic, perfect for LIM, Gay xxx
