Where's Rudolph? Oh Deer Xmas Card

Could not resist titling this 'Where's Rudolph?' Can you find Rudolph?

Created this Christmas card using a couple Recollections stamps.Used American Crafts glitter gel pens to add the bright spots of color. Used another pen to add some white. Added ribbon. 

Used a base that is only 1/8" bigger than the layer on top of it. I've always had a problem with placing the layers crooked if they were not 1/4" bigger. I asked a friend, Susan, of Expression Avenue and she said she eyeballs it  & puts a corner down. My problem was I was putting a side down all at once so I tried the corner method and it worked.

 Supplies List 

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
paper:  the Paper Studio Blue Classic Snowflakes scrapbook  cardstock - blue, red

  1. I'm looking at your card on my laptop so the pictures aren't big and I'm having trouble seeing Rudolph...but I'm guessing he's the one leading. :)
