Dasher

Rudolph might be the most famous reindeer of all among most people, but among stampers, it's Dasher.  He's at least the most loved.

I got this idea from splitcoaststampers.com.  They used all different products, but I thought, "Hey – I can do that with Stampin' Up! products!" 
Dasher The card is a folded 1/2 sheet of card stock.  I ran it through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle die, then punched the scallops with the Crop-a-dile.  It went through the Big Shot again with the Petals-a-Plenty folder, and then I sponged Champagne Mist shimmer paint over the embossed image. 

For the center, I die-cut the larger of the two scallop circles from the Scallop Circle #2 die using vellum card stock and Deck the Halls designer series paper.  I inked Dasher with versamark and then Early Espresso, and added some more shimmer paint to his antlers.  I always mess with my stamped vellum before the ink is dry, and it ends up smearing, so I embossed Dasher with some clear powder, then added some Early Espresso grosgrain.  The whole thing (from conception to "Woohooo!") took about 15 minutes.  Now that I have the design, it should be a lot faster.

Thanks for stopping in!
