Rudolph the Red Bowed Reindeer

Monday, November 26, 2012

This is my entry for the CAS Winter Design Team challenge going on over at Splitcoast.  Denise has asked us to make a card based on music from one of our favorite holiday movies.  Who doesn't love Rudoph the Red Nosed Reindeer...cartoon and song?  I've taken artistic license and dropped the red nose but added a red bow instead!

My card base is a standard A2 size in SU! Early Espresso.  On top of that is a layer of ivory card stock that's been dry embossed using a diffuser.  It's been stamped simply with the sentiment from Verve.

The reindeer was made by glueing some Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap onto a piece of scrap card stock.  One layer of Glue n' Seal on the card stock, wrinkling the tissue wrap over top and then adding one more layer of the Glue n' Seal over top.  Once that was dry, I sponged some Distress Inks over top.  Next, it was cut with the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight die.  Then I added some bling by sprinkling some glass glitter randomly over the reindeer while allowing some of the musical print to show through.  Next I added a moderate layer of Ranger Glossy Accents to seal in the glass glitter.

My only embellishment...a simple red satin bow. 

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Early Espresso and Gina K. Pure Luxury card stock in Ivory
Ink:  Brushed Corduroy and Pumice Stone Distress Inks, as well as SU! Real Red
Stamps:  Verve Merry Wishes
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight, Sizzix Triad Leaves embossing folder, Tim Holtz Embossing Diffuser Set, Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap in Composer, SU! Champagne Glass Stampin' Glitter, Glue n' Seal, Ranger Glossy Accents, misc. red satin ribbon, sponges, ATG

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
