CAS Christmas March Reminder - Deer

Hello there!  This is the reminder post for our first birthday Deer challenge at CAS Christmas.

   

 Here's my card.


I love using critters as letters in sentiments and this little reindeer looked like a "Y" to me, so that's how this card came about.  The reindeer was stamped with Copic friendly black ink on a scrap of X-press It cardstock, coloured with Copics then die cut out with the matching die.


The background was created by ink smooshing Peacock Feathers distress oxide ink with a piece of acetate on a stitched rectangle die cut from Bristol paper.  Merry was die cut from white and black scraps and offset.  Christmas was black heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  Clear shimmer added to merry and Crystal Glaze added to Rudolph's nose finished off the card (wasn't able to capture in the photo).  Oh, and Rudolph was popped up on black fun foam.



Chrissie from Simply One of a Kind is our guest this month.  And did I mention there are a couple of prizes up for grabs?  For details and more inspirations, head on over to the blog HERE.  The challenge ends in a week on March 24.  Hope you will play along.  Thank you for visiting.

Love, love, love your card, Trina. The die-cut sentiment really takes one's attention, especially with Rudolph as the "Y". (Doesn't he look smug about that?) Great CAS design. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

What an adorable reindeer, making "Y" and completing the sentiment, Trina! I love his facial expression and your Copics coloring makes him look even more adorable. The black shadow is so effective in making the sentiment stand out. You even used black foam to Rudolph to match the other letters. The smooshed Peacok Feathers beautifully creates an icy feelings. A fantastic deer CAS card!
