Merry Xmas from Seattle

Tomorrow I'm getting together with some crafty friends and designed this make and take for the gals so they can try out a slider.  So simple and so cute!

I did a Distress Ink watercolor wash on the background, stamped the skyline THEN spattered with Copic Opaque White.  You just water it down a tiny bit then spatter away.  It's not called opaque for nothing--love!  I then stamped the sentiment.  Next I diecut the slot--notice I adhered the diecut onto the card base for a seamless background--and the glittery Space Needle and its shadow.  I assembled the slider do-bob (an MFT slider element and 2 cardstock circles) and set that aside for the glue to dry while I colored up that cute reindeer.

My last step, of course, was to attach the reindeer to the slide mechanism and give him a Glossy Accents nose.  So cute!

The video may also be viewed on YouTube.
