A Tiny Reindeer Greeting!

Today, I posted this card on Artistic Outpost's blog!

This wonderful little reindeer image is from Frosty and Friends, a new set from Artistic Outpost!

Most of the scene is colored with Copic markers and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The tree and
"greeting" card were stamped separately.  I added color to the stamp with water based markers and stamped each on a scrap of paper.  I cut them out and glued them to the image. I used a glue pen on the tree and sky to add "Sugar Shimmer" Fairydustglitter. 
The image is cut out with Spellbinders Postage Stamps die template. I matted it with a square green Bazzill paper cut with Classic Squares SM #5.
The card front was an experiment!  I embossed a piece of white cardstock using Spellbinders Snowflakes Impressabilities.  Before removing the paper, I dabbed Brushable Glue from Sparkle & Sprinkle over it.  Yes, glue got on the Impressabilities, but it washed right off!  I sprinkled Clearsnap Fairdustglitter "Sugar Shimmer" over it.  It wasn't quite the look I wanted!!!  Looking back, I think I should have brushed the glue on.  The dabbing didn't give full coverage.    At that point I didn't feel like re-doing it!  It's still a great background of shimmer and embossed snowflakes!
I added bakers twine stuck to a piece of 1/8" red line tape.  To that, I glued on a tiny bow with a gold jingle bell.
