Foiled Deers and Mistletoe

Good morning crafty friends. I hope you are all well and having a good week.

I have two cards for you today, as they are virtually the same, just done in different colourways.

I got the Minc machine out for these and went for full on shimmer and shine lol. For the blue card I designed a pattern using Silhouette software and then printed it out with my Laserjet printer.

Then I used lots of little bits of leftover foil and ran it through the Minc to give me a random colour pattern.

Then using a Spellbinders Christmas die I cut two Reindeer's, one on the reverse so they could look at each other.

I love the pattern it gives to the reindeer, instead of just being one flat colour. Then I added lots of dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Silver Moondust to finish it off.

For the second card, I used some of the Heidi Swapp minc paper, and ran it through the machine using Rose Gold Deco Foil.

This gave me a rose gold and black chevron pattern, so I did the same again with the deer's and this time used a black and soft gold colour for the card.

The mistletoe is cut using a Cheery Lyn die, and for this card I cut it from some glossy black card.

The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted set, and again I cut it from the foiled and glossy cards. 

I didn't think this one needed anymore bling lol, so apart from the noses, I left it as is.

Hope you like them, take care and I'll see you tomorrow.

  1. Oh my goodness...what a brilliant idea to add the pattern to the print and then use our Deco Foil! I just love it!
