Impression Obsession Theme Day Christmas

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Theme Day.

We have set aside a day to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession projects. Have fun checking out what our Designers have made for today. The participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.
I have been thinking about this card for a long time now. Wondering how it would work out etc. I thought the Theme Day for Christmas would be the perfect time to try it out.

Using Neenah card I stenciled with a cloud stencil and Distress Oxide Inks in various colours, going from darkest at the top to lightest at the bottom. 
I first die cut the reindeer then coloured the bits and pieces with Copic markers. For Rudolph I used a deep brown with a deep red, and dark brown for his antlers.

Once everything was cut and coloured I began to put the pieces together, using thin strips of foam tape behind the ears that would be used for attaching the deer to the card.
I wanted to use my smaller circle die, but it would have been too tight, so I used the next size up. This meant however that I could not get circles for the 8 reindeer plus Rudolph. So I squished two in without holes, one at the bottom left and the other at the top right and thought I would let you know they were on standby! 

The panel was affixed to my card base using foam tape. I glued the circle dies to my base card as well, and the deer were attached with those thin foam strips behind the ears.
I used Copper Nuvo drops for the eyes and stamped the sentiment using embossing powder, then applied three of the ink colours I had previously used over each word of the sentiment and glued them to the card in the centre area.

To Rudolf's nose I added Midas Touch Shimmering Pen.
I can say I had a good time making this card, and I hope you enjoy it as well.

  1. How adorable, Rudolph with his friends!!

  2. so brilliant ... clearly your card needs to be added to the samples on the website ... gives the die a whole new group of possibilities.
