Dasher is Back!

What a week!  I was wanting to post earlier this week, but just wasn't able to.  I'm so glad it's Friday again!  I used this week's card sketch on SCS as inspiration for this card, SC354.

Today's card features my favorite reindeer, Dasher (p. 19).  The greeting stamp is from the Christmas Greetings set (p. 41).  This is the first card that I've made with the beautiful Christmas paper, Holly Berry Bouquet DSP (p. 20 in the Holiday Mini).  The right border of the Red/Green strip was made with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (p. 211).

Notice how I made some of Dasher's antlers red?  I first inked up the whole stamp with Chocolate Chip ink.  I then removed the ink on the parts I wanted red with a blender pen.  Then, I inked up these parts with a Real Red marker.  It's much faster and easier than inking up the whole stamp with markers.  I also sponged around Dasher with Crumb Cake ink.
