The Ho Ho Deer Production Line

Hi my friends, thank heavens it's Friday because it's been one of those hectic weeks in the cubbyhole. Brodie has his first Christmas Craft Fair tomorrow to fund raise for his trip to Machu Picchu so I've been back on the production line, burning the midnight oil to make more Christmas cards using the adorable Ho Ho Deer die, and red pom poms that came with Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit and Pebbles Metallic Foil Foam Alphabet Stickers from the October Card Kit.

I learned my lesson from the last production line adventure and kept this one fairly simple. I began by trimming kraft card bases to measure 3.3/4" x 5", inked one of the snowflakes from Mini Weathered Winter, one of my favourite Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Christmas stamp sets with Colorbox Frost White Pigment ink and heat set.
 die-cut the deer
coloured the antlers with Ground Espresso Distress Marker and the eyes with a Sakura Black Glaze Pen
I matted the panels on to A2 white card blanks and used the Alphabet Stickers to create the sentiment. When I ran out of "Y" and "R", it was time to get creative with alternative sentiments.
I fixed Lucy Little Things Ice Crystal Sequins and the red pom poms in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte
I inked the sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Modern Christmas with Ranger Carnation Archival ink, trimmed and fixed to the cards with Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.

On the one hand, I'm hoping for a big turnout and lots of sales tomorrow, on the other, if stocks are seriously depleted, I will be back on production line "Christmas cardmaking" duty again on Monday for Christmas Craft Fair Take 2 on the 30th. Have a great weekend, whatever you have planned.
Happy Crafting
