If you made an unannounced visit to the Fungeon (that’s my basement craft room), you might find a couple of unfinished projects sitting around or a collection of products I want to use together. These project ideas “marinade” over time until they come together in a finished project that I share with you. A couple of weeks ago I punched a sweet reindeer from gold glimmer paper – it’s been sitting on a gold-and-black page, waiting for me to pull together the rest of the pieces and make it into a card. Well, here is is:
I will stand by my distaste for glitter – it’s nothing by a pile of small, shiny speckles that wants to ruin your life. That doesn’t mean I don’t like shiny things – and Stampin’ Up!’s no-shed (those are my words) Glimmer Paper earns my seal of approval. Approved! Not one loose speck when I punched this reindeer with my Deer Builder Punch. Here’s a look a the punch:
The gold glimmer paper is part of the Glimmer 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper that’s part of the Lights Aglow Suite (page 31) in Stampin’ Up!’s July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. The pack includes 6 glimmer pages (two gold, two Very Vanilla and two Evening Evergreen). All three of these colors coordinating with the Lights Aglow 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, which serves as the gorgeous backdrop for my flying reindeer. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in this pack of papers:
I was planning to center my reindeer over a popped up vellum circle – it’s a go-to trick for me. When I set that vellum circle on my black sky, though, I immediately saw the circle as a moon. I simply offset the two in the center of the card, making the circle an important actor in my card. Here’s a closer look:
