Leaping Reindeer

Hello dear friends.

I have another Christmas card to share today.



I didn't add any color to the white tissue paper, just scrunched it up and glued it onto white cardstock.

After lightly adding some VersaMark on the wrinkles, I heat embossed it with gold.

The picture doesn't show the shine of the embossing.

CAS Mix Up is easy this month.

I've done some die cutting and dry embossing along with the tissue and heat embossing.

Challenge closes on the 24th.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Your background caught my eye immediately! Thanks for the idea because I kept tearing the tissue when adding color. Love this. It's so perfect behind your die cut reindeer. Brilliant take on the tissue paper technique!!

Sorry for double comment. I just discovered that comments done in internet explorer don't show up except in bloggers email.
