Totally Papercrafts ,,,, Christmas Punches

Good Morning :-) hope all is well with you all and hope you're not snowed in, but IF you are it's a good time to catch up with making all your Christmas cards !!! :-)

This week on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge it was Heidi's turn to choose the theme and she chose


so ,, get out your snowflakes, stars, holly punches,,, etc and join in :-)

We are sponsored by Susie Sugar of Die Cut Dreams so a fabulous prise of 40 Christmas Cracker Die Cuts ,,, absolutely GORGEOUS on offer !! hop on over to the challenge blog to see a lovely piccy :-)

For my card i used my new Hero Arts Reindeer stamp. I coloured it with Copics and added a dab of red stickles to his nose ,,, it doesn't show up very much but it is there :-) The papers are from My Minds Eye and SU Chocolate Chip for matting. I used a Martha Stewart Himalayan Snowflake punch and Icicle punch and 2 woodware snowflake punches too. I used a glue pen to draw over the antlers and sprinkled with Art Institute Pewter ultrafine glitter ,,Pewtwr is OOS at the moment but it will be in stock soon :-) I then went a bit mad and added this glitter everywhere ,, it is gorgeous and so sparkly !! the sentiment is also from a Hero Arts set and the ribbon slider is from a Nellie Snellen Rectangle die
