MORE OCL Sneaks!

Don't you just *love* Santas and reindeer? I do!! So when this cute pair showed up together in the new Reindeer Kisses set, I though I was gonna die!!!

My dp is from a Hobby Lobby stack, and is actually really glittery irl. I went over the reindeer's antlers with a Spica glitter gel pen, and yes that is Liquid Applique you see on Santa's beard and outfit :)

The sentiment is also from this set. I dotted all the embossed edges with the Spica glitter pen, to give the card more shimmer, and then used some peppermint ribbon that has flecks of silver in it - done!

The next card I am showing you is from the set Purrrfect Wishes. I chose an odd color scheme for a Christmas card, I know - but I love it! The kitty is colored with Copics and the snowman is outlined with them. The snowman as well as the ground are colored with a white gel pen. The sentiment is also outlined with a Copic marker.

I edged both of my squares with grey ink, since there wasn't enough room to mat them. I tied a knot in some pink grosgrain ribbon and used a stapler to attach it on either side.

The last preview of the day is from the set Gingerbread Fun. It has the most adorable gingerbread men you've ever seen! I chose to use the ones sized to fit perfectly into a 1 1/4"" round punch, and matted them with a 1 3/8" punch.

I love this Basic Grey Figgy dp, so I wanted to leave it as exposed as possible. I cut small strips of the blue cardstock and placed them between the circles, and then dotted them with a white gel pen.

I hope you like what you've seen today! Be sure to head over to the OCL blog to see who else is previewing other sets!
