Season's Sweetings!!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!!

I have a merry little card to share with you today!! This sweet reindeer Cuppie is from one of my favorite Taylored Expressions sets, Season's Sweetings! Cuppie always makes me smile, and well, a reindeer cuteness!

I stamped this sweetie in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Square Nestabilities and then stamped the sentiment, Season's Sweetings, on the bottom of the panel. I placed the Nestie back onto the panel and then traced the inside with a Copic Multi-Liner to create the frame. While I was at it, I sponged the edges with Memento Cantaloupe and Memento Tangelo to make it pop.

All of the patterned paper is Everybody Loves Christmas from Echo Park Papers, and I used one of the patterns to paper piece Cuppie's "liner". I added Coffee Bean Sparkly Fluff to his antlers and Starfire Glitter to his cherry.

For some extra interest and "oomph", I embossed the patterned paper panels, including the circle panel, with the Scallops and Circles Impression Plate. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this Impression Plate! I then sewed all of the layers on my sewing machine. It's hard to see but I did add a border using the new Small Scallop Border Die.

I stamped one of the snowflakes from Winter Wonderland and then cut it out using the amazing Winter Wonderland Snowflakes dies. I added a silver brad to the center of the snowflake, as well as two on opposing corners of my card. A bow created with The Bow Easy finishes this one off!

Here are the Taylored Dies and Impression Plate I've used on my card today:
