Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I would like to show you this cute and shimmery Christmas card using a Digital Image from the Gerda Steiner Designs November-December Digital-Stamp-Bundle:

  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Reindeer with Bird image available as part of the Gerda Steiner Designs November-December Digital-Stamp-Bundle with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a damp watercolor brush
  • add a highlight to the nose with a white gel pen
  • stamp baubles, stars and presents from the Gerda Steiner Designs Deck the Halls and Holiday Friends stamp sets with Versamark onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper and heat-emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • color the background with the help of Distress Markers (Spun Sugar, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China) and the Distress Marker Spritzer
  • mist the whole panel with Pearlized Water and let it dry thoroughly
  • mat the panel onto a piece of Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock before adhering it to a cardbase
  • add the sentiment created with the Dymo Label Maker

Have a colorful day.

Yours,
