Hi Folks, Laura here with some Christmas cards.
First up this deer is from a dingbats font. I scaled it up in Silhouette Studio and cut it on my Cameo.
I threaded some Holly Berries sequins onto some cotton and tangled them around the antlers. I secured the threads on the back and attached the reindeer to the card with some adhesive foam.
The second reindeer silhouette is from a photograph. If you play with the contrast settings in some photo software (or alternatively ‘posterise’ the image and set to two colours) you can get a silhouette outline and trace this in your silhouette software.
I set him against a shaker background full of Alma Mater sequins.
This third reindeer is another dingbat. I played around deleting some lines and adding others so I could give him a red shaker pocket for a nose! The nose is so stuffed full of Christmas Wishes sequins that it doesn’t actually shake!
Thanks for looking,
