Received this cute wine cork reindeer ornament as a gift. Lifted a Carol Monson layout (last image) from the Stash Busters challenge. Inspired by the In the Mood challenge to use ampersands (challenge below). Lightly misted it using a mask and then added pen faux stitching. []All the paper is MME scraps from a previous card I made (2nd to last image). It's was from a 6x6 pad. I covered the seams with the rosettes and the photo. :) Got to use up some OLD alpha stickers (MAMBI “wine” stickers from 2004 and Cloud 9 “reindeer” stickers from 2008). My cork reindeer was made by enlarging the diecut image to 200%, tracing it on the cork and then handcutting it out. Kind of worked backwards and made my thank you card first by including the photo of the gift on card front, then I made the layout. All colors inspired by the card. Came together pretty quickly since I had already made the card once and the layout was a lift. All this was made from 9 items on my workspace (I think I need to clean up):1. mist (Tattered Angels)2. patterned papers (MME)3. stamps (HA/SC)4. inks (Versafine, Memento)5. dice cut (MM Slice - thank goodness I had made several before my machine died)6. buttons7. alpha stickers (MM)8. jewel (K&Co)9. punches (Fiskars & EK)add'l supplies: scoreboard (MS), mask (SC), cork (Darice), stickers (MAMBI, Pebbles, Cloud 9), distress ink tool (TH)
