The Twenty-Five Days of Christmas Day Two

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Day Two of The Twenty Five Days of Christmas!!
   And Blog Candy!!

I will be showcasing a different Christmas card each day of December from the 1st through the 25th.  I have tried to keep most of the cards mail friendly without lots of heavy embellishments.  I send out over 75 Christmas cards and I really  want them to be easy to mail.  On Today's cards I used an embossing folder to create the focal point.

Stamps:Various Holiday Sentiments
CS: Cream, Dark Green; Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Brilliance Pearlescents Pigment ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Silver Stickles glitter glue
Silver Ribbon
Reindeer Embossing Folder-Darice
Background made with Template and spray inks

After dry embossing the card stock I used the direct to paper method of applying ink to the raised portion (the reindeer).  On the first card, I used Vintage Photo DI.  On the second card, I used pigment ink and then sprinkled clear embossing powder over and heat embossed.

And, don't forget the blog candy.  I purchased some new items and shared some of my stash.  Here it is!!
