It’s been freezing here in San Antonio over the last couple of days. LITERALLY. I had to cover my plants and buy the dog a sweater just so she’d go outside (she’s a boxer, so she hasn’t got much of a coat to keep her warm). It really puts me in holiday project mode, though.
Deep down I would love for it to snow just a little bit; I probably won’t get my wish granted this far south, but that doesn’t mean I can’t stamp some wintery scenes, like today’s card.
This is an excellent project if you’re just starting out with shimmer mists and you find the unpredictability a bit intimidating. You can always pull your reindeer off and try your background again :)
I colored the cute little reindeer with Copic Sketch markers in E04, E23, and E25 before I die cut him and popped him up on the card front with foam circles. Isn’t he sweet?
Here’s the step by step instructions (with measurements!) for you.
