Groovi Reindeer Wreath

Good Morning!

So much for summer eh, has it stopped raining where you are yet?

But seeing as the sun isn't cracking the pavement, I don't feel so bad about showing another Christmas card....

I really enjoyed making this, well Clarity Groovi is therapeutic...

I first transferred the reindeers and holly line art onto the parchment, then I used one of the border plates to put 2 basic square frames in place, next I added another border plate design around the frame.Then it was time for a little free hand to round the corners with the larger embossing tool.

I coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils.

Time to turn the parchment over and work from the front, I used a bold straight grid and single needle tool to add some piercing detail and cut a few little crosses. I used a two needle tool to pierce around the reindeer antlers, then carefully snipped the excess away, it looks lovely even without all the piercing and snipping too, take it as far as you feel comfy!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
