Today I have a non colouring card to show you. I have made a circular easel card for a change and now I think I need to get myself the big circles from Spellbinders. It's so much easer to cut with those than by hand. LoL. I have used designer papers from Card Craft work I think. They are old and non used but now they are working for me. The raindeer is cut with a Tim Holtz die that I just love. To get the pattern on the raindeer I have use some glossy accent and made a pattern with that. When it was completely dry I took some of my old paper distress ink and went over it with a sponge to give the raindeer some colour.
I have also used some snowflakes made with MS punches and a die from Whimsy Stamps. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and to finish the whole thing off, I used a sentiment from Maja Design saying "Winter greetings" in Swedish. Of course isn't a winter card complete without glitter in the snowiest way, so ice glitter from Rangers is also used on the sentiment and flowers. Hope you like it.
We have a new challenge up for you over at the Crafty Card Makers blog and our theme is "Shaped card showing a raindeer or two." So raindeers it is. Pop on over to the blog and have a good look at what my fellow teamies have been up to. Oh and the card has to be shaped as well, no squares or rectangles .

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
Love n hugs
