Merry Everthing - Santa Sleigh

Hello loves ! It's less than 10 days till Christmas Day ! I'm super excited. With all those Christmas stamp sets that just came in the mail, I've got lots of Christmas cards to make and to send out soon. 

For today's card, I've used an adorable stamp set from MFT - Merry Everything. I love all those cute reindeer and fun sentiments. 

Using my Misti stamping tool, I stamped all the images I wanted using Memento Tuxedo black ink on a white cardstock.

I colored in the images using my Copic sketch markers and fuzzy cut them all out using my trusty scissors and x-ecto knife for those delicate areas under the sleigh. I also die cut the word Merry Christmas out of white card stock for the sentiment.

For the background, I cut out a circle masking paper and stick it onto my watercolor card stock which I blended the sky using distress inks- blue sapphire, seedless preserve, black soot and peacock feathers. Using my paint brush soaked in water, I flicked the brush and randomly splattered water droplets onto my card to create a snowy look. When all is dry, I peel off the masking paper and die cut the card stock using the biggest stitched rectangle die from YourNextStamp. 

I pasted all the images and sentiment onto my background card using multi medium matte. I've added on baker's twine around the reindeer and strung it to the sleigh. Lastly, I used my white gel pen to add dots to the present and highlight to the reindeer and sleigh. Followed by adding some shine and glitter onto the white part of santa's hat, scarve and gloves using Star Dust stickles. To finish it off, I stick the front of my card to a A2 size white card base

Thank you for visiting and hope you love this card.
