*Flashback Friday*

Another November Friday means another flashback Christmas card.

This was the card I made and sent out back in 2001. The card itself was a great light blue cardstock with white speckles in it. It made me think of snow. The reindeer panel was fun to create... I used a Hero Arts shadow stamp and inked it up with blue pigment ink. I then took the Hero Arts snowflake stamps and stamped the clean dry stamps into the ink on the shadow stamp. This removed most of the ink in the snowflake shapes from the shadow stamp. I then stamped the shadow stamp onto white cardstock.

I then stamped the reindeer (Old Island Stamp Company) in blue Ultimate Metallic ink on top of the shadow image and when it was all dry, added just a little red glitter glue to make my reindeer into a Rudolph.

Happy Holidays (Hero Arts I think), was stamped in the Ultimate Metallic blue ink as well.

Thanks for stopping by!
