heavy metal reindeer...part 2!
you'll notice the edge punches and nestie labels have really come into their own this year, and the sewing machine is ubiquitous! tied in the category of "favorite background" was the kraft/silver version of this hambly snowflake paper and vintage sheet music, but there's plenty of older basic grey solids and prints and a bit of love elsie noel paper that i think i may actually cry when i've used the very last bit! the reindeer was diecut with the tim holtz sizzix die and has been used on flattened soda cans and some thin craft metal; i even had a bit of an experiment with copper alcohol ink. having had lots of interest, i did a little tutorial on using soda cans in the cuttlebug at some point. it's very EASY and totally cool, so you might like to rinse and save a pop can or two!!!
