You Know Dasher

Yes the wonderful Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer song starts with those very 3 words.  It is one of my favorite Christmas traditions to sing the song and watch the show.  Well, Stampin' Up! put out a reindeer stamp called Dasher a while ago.  It is still available in the catalog and I absolutely love it.  I was just playing around with it yesterday and this is what I came up with.

I started by taking a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of whisper white and running it through the big shot using the impression folder called Snow Burst which is in the Holiday Mini Catalog coming to you soon.  I then took some basic black card stock and punched 2 strips using the Lace Ribbon Border punch.  I added 1" circles of the glittery red paper behind the floral openings.  I then glued them crisscross on the white.  The center piece with Dasher on it is a piece of basic black cut at 3" x 3", glittery red cut at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4", and white cut at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".  I did stamp Dasher first then trimmed the white piece down to the size I wanted.  

As for Dasher himself, I used the brush end of the Chocolate Chip SU! marker to color him and the brush end of a VersaMark marker to do the antlers.  This way I could add the silver embossing powder to the antlers and heat emboss them.  I used a silver ink pad I happen to have to brush the edges of the white before putting it on the red.   I used Sticky Strip to adhere Dasher to the glitter paper.  If I tried, I bet I could get him off but the Sticky Strip does hold better than anything else I have tried.

I want to thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow to see what new idea I come up with.  See you then.
