Christmas Card Club - Rita's Reindeer

Happy Sunday. Today is another Christmas Club Card - and the theme was selected by Miss Rita of RMG Creations. (a very lovely blog in case you don't know about this one).

Today's card came together fairly quickly, once decisions were made about which dies to use. I'm  not going into depth about the dies used, but if you want the info, let me know. I'll just explain a bit about the creation of it. Here goes:

 
 
- white card base was embossed, just a bit peeking out behind the popped up S/B die cut,. The die cut paper was VOS indeed. Found in the stash, though the swirls were evocative of a snowstorm. There is a noticeable difference in the white colors, since the swirled paper is quite old, but I rather liked the look.
 
- IO Santa sleigh & IO tree die, Sweet Stamps reindeer & MBox joy sentiment. All these dies were cut from a white snippet that has been floating around the desk for a while. To get the pearly glisten, a wet brush was swiped over a Mica Color Stargazer iridescent white (see below) and painted the shapes. Was quite pleased with the effect achieved, as I couldn't find any white pearlized paper. Good to know I can do this.
 
 
 
This is another VOS product...comes in handy when I rediscover it time after time!
 
Please take time to visit the other members of this fun Christmas Card Club- their links are on the sidebar. Let me also welcome a new follower, Lorraine (Rainey's Craft Room) who is a member of our group. Thanks for becoming a follower Lorraine!
 
 
Ya'll have a nice day, and hope it's as beautiful wherever you may be in the world, as it is here in Upstate South Carolina today. We've had several just perfectly wonderful Fall days lately. Big Hugs.

  1. That's a great idea to paint over the card with the mica paints. I managed to buy a set of these in a palette tray. Not quite the same as yours but I think thy will work just as well but not tried them out yet. so much to do and so little time or even the inclination to do so. Hugs Mrs A.

  21. A lovely card Mary. You and I seem to think alike. I have five Art Quest palettes - the lady from my local craft shop in UK used to demonstrate them at the big craft shows - but I haven´t used them for years. Then tonight I got one out to add a bit of shine to my angel wings (see my newest post). They are lovely to use aren´t they.
    I really like white on white cards and the shine on your´s is lovely. Kate x

  38. Looks wonderful, Mary. Love how you obtained the pearl sheen. It looks fabulous. I like when WOW cards have different shades of white. i think it gives a sense of depth.

    I will remember your idea here. i do not have moca powders but do have a box of pearlescent "rouge" type product. FDound it while sorting and thought it might be fun to keep. But i did make a vow that if I have not used it before the move, then it is going to the thrift shop! teehee
