Artful Days November Box Reindeer Christmas Card Tutorial

Hello crafty friends 

I am guest designer for Artful Days this month and the goodie box theme is Christmas. If you want to grab you box there are a few left.

The 6 x 6 papers are from Echo Park and they are gorgeous.

Take a 6 x 6 sheet of paper and tear around the edges. Don;t worry about being neat as this adds texture. Adhere this onto one of the embossed card blanks.

Cut a silver doily in half and adhere to card. Next take one of the 6 x 6 papers and cut a 6 x 2 strip and adhere it over the doily before trimming to fit.

Cut a 3 x 5 rectangle and adhere over the strip

Take the other half of the doily and place it over the larger rectangle.
Cut another smaller rectangle and place this over the larger one.

Take one of the torn sides from the first layer and place over the top of the small rectangle.

Cut a strip 2 x 4 and place across the center of the card.

Paint the wooden reindeer. I used black gesso for the first layer and then added crackle paste to it which i tinted with gold paint.

Decorate the card by clustering the poinsettia and berries around the card. Finish off by adding a sentiment topper.

Here is the finished card

Thank you for visiting
