Growing in Unity Day 2 Christmas Reindeer

Growing in Unity
Day 2


Hey crafty friends,  I'm back again for day 2 of GUI!!!
I hope you stopped by my blog yesterday for Day 1.
If not head back over and check out my Halloween night canvas and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to WIN a grab bag of stamps from Unity!!!

For today's project I took a leap into the future a wee bit for Christmas.  Although, those that usually make Christmas card to send out start earlier  than you might think. I however don't usually get to make Christmas cards very often.
And if you ask my family, we are pretty horrible about sending cards out on time anyway. We always have blamed our grandma for that.  She accepts the blame too.  With great pleasure. 

Now onto my card I made today. I haven't had the chance to use these cute lil' reindeer yet so I decided a Christmas card would be perfect.  

Here is my card......




And a couple up close photos...



To see the details.

I decided because I wanted all the reindeer on the card, to make it a longer card, which is good because I can always put a letter in it as well when mailing it off. 
I used Bo- Bunny's Elf magic collection as my main back ground.
After stamping the stamps on brown paper, which seemed appropriate for the reindeer, I cut around them leaving a lil' bit of space to outline them.
It gave it a cute look.  I used color pencils, markers and Gel Pens to color in the parts I wanted to highlight.
I then took other paper from Bo Bunny and outlined behind the image to make it stand out a touch.  Using 3D dots, I attached the Reindeer to their designated place on my card.  I added a few red snowflakes that seemed to add a perfect touch.
Of course I had to add a sentiment, so I chose "Let it snow".
Here is another picture for you to see the 3D effect. 


Thats is it for today.
