Reindeer Baubles

Hi! Here are a couple of cards I made using Distress Oxides for the background. I am so addicted to oxides now, I think I need to buy some more colours! I have 14 so far, which seems a lot, but urggg... I just want them all!

The first card has a liberal spray of Glimmer Mist on the background, but I left the second one as it was. I layered the bauble die cut over the background, adding a bit or torn card under the reindeer's feet, for a snowy bank. I used 3D squares to fix the bauble to the card, and added a bow to the top. The bows took me ages! I am so rubbish at tying bows, damn faffy things. I might have to get one of those bow maker things.

Anyway, here are the cards:

Must admit I couldn't decide which DOs to buy so put it off for awhile, I have bought some now though! Your backgrounds are so pretty and the white die cut bauble looks so striking against them.
Thanks for sharing with us at HLS Anything Goes with dies. :)

Don't buy a bowmaker, use a fork:
