Can you believe that I forgot about my Dasher stamp? Considering that winter is coming soon and will be here a long time in northern Vermont, I try to hang on to the summer as long as I can, but recently, I was going through my stamp bins to reorganize them and picked out my Dasher image and got excited about it all over again. Just as excited as I was when I first realized it was in the catalog last year!
I went fairly simple with this card, but what really dresses it up is that beautiful dry embossing on the Old Olive cardstock.
I started off with a Real Red card base. I then ran a piece of Old Olive cardstock through my Big Shot die cutting machine inside the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The embossing folders give such a defined embossed detail. I added a strip of retired patterned paper from last year's catalog on top of the embossed cardstock.
I stamped the Dasher image on Very Vanilla cardstock with Really Red ink and applied some 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the antlers. This was mounted on top of Real Red cardstock and then a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock. I added a folded scrap of Chocolate Chip grosgrain behind the image and popped it up from the card front with pop-dots.
The greeting was done with Basic Brown ink and is from the Four the Holidays set and then cut the first word out and mounted it to Chocolate Chip cardstock and mounted it on top of the card front.
Quick and simple and a great card for quick holiday card making, Stamp-a-Stacks, workshops, classes, etc.
