Hi Krafty Friends! Jen from Katahdin Krafts on the blog today with this cute reindeer fly over slimline card from the December Subscription Box!

The first thing I did for this card was cut a card panel 8.5″ x 3.5″. Then I stamped out the deer image from “Forest Friends” nine times with Copic friendly ink. I then colored each one the same with the exception of “Rudolphs” nose.

Body: E34, E35 & E37. Forehead, Belly & Antlers: E51, E53 & E55. Ears & Cheeks: R02. Nose: E49 & R27

Next, I used Trinity Stamps “Rooftops Border Die” and cut it out in black cardstock. I colored some scrap cardstock in YR23 & YR24, then cut and glued them onto the back of the open windows. I used Lawn Fawns glitter pen to add some sparkle to the glowing light.

Next, I used the glitter included in the Box, Maker Forte’s, Sugar Sparkle in “Scrunchie” and “British Racing Green” on each scarf. I applied glue to every other stripe then sprinkled the green, then repeated for the pink.

I then experimented with my background inks. Trying out both Distress and Distress Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.

The top panel is Distress Ink while the bottom is Oxides. I liked the look of both, but found the regular Distress Ink to be a little deeper and what I wanted for this panel. I splattered Lawn Fawns “Liquid Stardust” and “Picket Fence” Distress Paint on the background to make a nice sparkling starry night sky.

Next, I wanted to experiment again with my card base. I cut a piece of cardstock 9″ x 8″ and scored at the 4″ mark, making a 9″ x 4″ card base, which I ink blended “Dusty Concord” around the edges. Then I cut another card base slightly smaller at 8.75″ x 7.5″ and scored that at 3.35″. This base I marked 1/8″ around the edges, and applied glue and the pink glitter.

I added the liquid glue to one edge at a time and then dumped the glitter onto the glue, into a coffee filter for easy clean up. I brushed and tapped the excess glitter off.

This is what they each looked like with the panel laying on top, I liked them both, but ultimately decided on the glittered edge to tie in the scarfs. You could also take the time to make a striped glittered edge around your card for an even better pairing!

Time to add the cute reindeer! I glued on the first four directly onto the panel. Then, I added foam adhesive to the other five, making them look like they are flying side by side.

I love this card! I like the way the lights from the houses seem to be glowing into the sky and how cute the glittered scarfs look on the reindeer!

Thanks so much for stopping by on this first day of December! This month‘s box is full of lots of fun supplies, I can’t wait for my next project! The critters included are simply adorable! Happy krafting!
