Clearly Besotted Merry Little Christmas Card



Hello everyone and welcome to the October challenge over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.



Our optional fun twist this time is 'twinkle' and I went with that to come up with this card.



I inked up some white card with Distress Oxide inks and added some water drops before cutting out the stars with the WPlus9 Starry Background die. I matted that onto silver mirror card and die cut the Christmas star from the same card.


The little deer is from the Clearly Besotted Merry Little Christmas stamp and die set, coloured with Copics, and the sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers. As a finishing touch, I added glossy accents to Rudolph's nose which has a pleasing dome to it, but it hasn't photographed well:-(

I'd like to play along at
