There She Goes (Again!) Ho Ho Ho!

Hi there! Today, the TSG Trendsetters are featuring new cards made with the 3 (oldie but goodie) sets being showcased on the TSG blog this week: HoHoHo, No Peeking, and Holiday Tags
I love the little set HoHoHo (not only is it a great price) but the illustrations by Torico are just adorable!
I made my cousin an ornament for her tree. I am going to hang this off her actual present as a nice little tag! I was her matron of honour in her wedding this summer and so this is her and hubby's first Christmas as a married couple! 

This first pic is with the flash of my camera on, so it's pretty stark with the white! But you can see the detail a bit better (forgive my bad photography, but I took this tonight!) I used an Stampin' Up snowflake BIGZ die, cut two pieces of lightweight chipboard and glued them together and painted with white acrylic and inked with tea dye distress ink. I then cut a snowflake out of thin wood veneer (SU as well) and glued that onto the chipboard ones and inked it also. This is a pretty solid snowflake (2 layers of chipboard, 3 coats of paint and a layer of wood!), so I hope it lasts for years to come!

I stamped the reindeer and coloured with copics, mounted onto larger green circle and crystal effects their noses, bells and hooves and used a glaze pen for the eyes and antlers. The bells and green ribbons also have spica pen added. 
I added a gold bow (SU- Summer Starfruit) and button tied with linen thread (TCP). The edges of the snowflake and around the circle die were topped with a light coating of Crystal Effects (SU) and chunky glitter (SU) was added.
Here is a pic of the ornament on my Christmas tree with the soft glow of the tree lights....

I computer-generated the little personalized words on the back, to commemorate the year :)
The holly and berries were cut using a Lil Inkers die. I used more twine to make a loop for it to hang on the tree. 

Go on over to the TSG BLOG to see what the other designers have come up with today:)
