Verve Peeks Day 3 AND Release Day!

Isn't this little reindeer just the cutest? He's such a fun guy to color and there are so many

possibilities for showing him off! I created an ornament to spotlight "Rudy"...not sure if Julee named him yet, but with his Crystal Effects nose, I thought he looked like Rudolph - lol!





The winter tree images were colored with Copics, die cut, popped with foam dots and highlighted with coarse glitter.



My second card features a bling-studded wreath of snowflakes...
no more fussy cutting needed with these snowflake images, thanks to the new die! Some of the snowflakes are popped with foam squares to add dimension.

This cute little reindeer DOES look like Rudolph! The Crystal effects is PERFECT on his cute little nose. I like the bright colors you selected and the glitter you added to the tree branches. I also think those snowflakes organized into a wreath shape look fantastic as well.
