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!"
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!
