Holiday Collage Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Happy Thursday! I made my first holiday card of the season combining some wonderful Winter & Christmas Rubber Stamps from Red Rubber Designs!

     Taking my inspiration from Sketch #3 for the October Card Sketch Challenge @, I decided to go horizontal with my card, making the stamped reindeer my focal point by popping it up.

     I was also inspired by the beautiful October Mood Board no.79 at Scrap Africa with the snow covered trees and muted colors!

     The background was smooshed with some Distress Inks, with a light splatter of Lindy's Stamp Gang Sidewalk Chalk spray. Then I stamped the trees and mountains with the Mountain Scenery Unmounted Cling Rubber Stamp, going over it with some watered down white paint, and embossing the falling snow with the Speckle Background stamp. The script and sentiment were stamped with the Vintage Santa stamp set, which is one my favorite holiday stamps!

     I used the Holiday Collages Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp for my reindeer, colored with Distress Inks, and applied some Clear Wink of Stella onto the frame. Then I used some Artists Tape to mask the frame, and embossed some more snow again with the Speckle Background stamp, adding a sparkly brad in the corner.

     I also embossed some "snow" along the right side of my card using the So Splattered Cling Mounted Stamp. Then I finished it off with some machine stitching and a sprig of holly.

     Thanks for stopping by!
