Everyone Loves Dasher

We were THRILLED to see the return of Dasher when we received the 2010-11 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog!  AND...it's an a la carte stamp, so you can buy it individually!  Who wouldn't love such a beautiful reindeer image?!  This card was one that we did last year; however, it is so worth posting as a repeat idea!  The original idea came from our AMAZING friend Patty Edwards.  The Dasher image was embossed using Bravo Burgundy craft ink and clear embossing powder on to Regal Rose cardstock.  We then brushed a coat of Champagne Mist shimmer paint over the whole piece.  The ticket corner punch was used on the top two layers.  The Make Merry stamp is from the Grateful Greeting set (so glad that set found it's way from last year's Holiday mini into the new IB&C too!) and was of course punched out using the tag punch.  The snowflakes in the background were from a retired hostess set; however, there are some great snowflake images in the Serene Snowflakes set.  We finished it off with some coordinating 3/8" Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon and gold mini brads.  You're probably thinking it's too early to worry about Christmas, right?  WRONG!  We can certainly understand though, because we are procrastinators too.  So what are you waiting for...GET BUSY!
