Reindeer Elegance

Good day! Welcome to a new post for Classy Cards 'n Such I am delighted to be here today sharing a new card for this week's CCNS challenge: Santa's Reindeer. Christmas cards to me are the perfect kind of cards to use lots of sparkle and shimmer on, and of course today's card is no exception!

I created a monochromatic silver and white card using the double glitter technique, which consists basically in stenciling with with glitter. I have a complete step by step tutorial at Classy Cards 'n Such blog. So make sure you click here, and learn how I made this card.

I also have PDF tutorial available for you! If you'd like to download the tutorial please click HERE.




Supplies
Dies: Spellbinders Gold Circles One, Spellbinders Frosty Forms
Embossing Folder: Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Reindeer Magic

Stamp: We R Memory Keepers White Christmas
Ink: Ranger Distress Embossing Ink
Paper: White Pearl Linen, Leather textured cardstock in off white, Spellbinders Delicate Pastels Craft Foil (silver backing), Heavyweight Vellum
Stencil: Dreamweaver Large Damask
Adhesives: 8 1/2" x 11" Double sided adhesive sheet, foam adhesive, two sided tape.
Accesories: Spellbinders Raspberry Spacer, Grand Calibur die cutting machine, Zap! heat tool

I hope you enjoyed my card and tutorial. I love how my design resulted… The sparkle and the monochromatic combination sure make the card look very elegant. If you are looking for a more subtle look you can use this technique for smaller accents too, like flourishes and leaves and it would work just as nice.
