Peace & Love


I may be the last person to finally own Hero Arts' Winking Reindeer and I've seen so many cute cards that used him. Love his ornate antlers!

I paired him with the Starry Sky background stamped with my favorite white ink--Papertrey's Fresh Snow. I think it's the "whitest" ink and I love how it looks on kraft.

I also sponged the ink around the edges of the card for a "frosty" look. The sentiment is from an older Hero Arts stamp set.

The "snow" on the ground was made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder which was a limited edition release from the UK.

I colored a clear gemstone with a Copic marker since I didn't have any red ones for his nose, and tied a bit of floss around his neck to finish him off.

Hoping to make more of these mini cards for Caring Hearts and Cards for Kids.

Thanks for visiting! Hope you're having a great week so far...
