I was at Loll Thompson's recently and she generously shared her copper sheets with us and had us heating the copper to get beautiful colour tones in it. It works really well with the Sizzix Bigz dies so I ended up with this lovely die cut reindeer that takes centre stage on my card for the HLS Design Team.
I kept the card very CAS as I didn't want to detract from the reindeer. I made a faux mother-of-pearl background with various green and brown Distress inks and some pearlescent paint. I sponged a bit around the edges for definition and added a vertical heat embossed sentiment.
The card base is textured shimmery cream cs with a simple piece of knotted copper cord to balance the focal panel.
Come and join us at HLS and show us some Christmas die cuts! There are great prizes - a $30 gift certificate to the winner and a $10 gift certificate to each of our Favourites, to spend at the Happy Little Stampers' shop.
