C.C. Designs Preview Day 1: MAKE A REINDEER METAL DIE

Happy Tuesday everyone! We are on Day 1 of Previews for the OCTOBER Release at C.C. Designs. The release will be available for purchase this Thursday at 12pm CST. The theme for this release is Christmas in October! I know I say this every month, but you are really going to LOVE everything! There will be 5 new stamp sets, an adorable Make A Reindeer Metal Die, a new Christmas Paper Pad, and some coordinating Christmas Enamel Dots.
Today I'm previewing the cutest Rudolf ever made using the Make A Reindeer Metal Die. The great thing about working with Metal Dies is the versatility. You can keep it easy peasy by cutting the pieces from different colored cardstock and gluing together, or you can cut the pieces from white cardstock and color the pieces to achieve more depth. For this card, I decided to color him up using Copic Markers!
Brown: E33, E35, E37, E18
Face/Stomach: W0, W1, W3, W5
Pink: R20, R22
Red: R24, R27, R29, R56, R59
Black: C5, C8, C10
Antlers: Decorative Paper
Eyes: Black Cardstock
Isn't he so much fun?!! I love him so much! To create this awesome wintry, forest scene, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Portrait Metal Die. It's one of my fave dies to create scenes with.
 The decorative paper is from Penny Black Festive and Frosty 6x6 Paper Pad. I raised several elements on foam tape for extra dimension. The sentiment is from another C.C. Designs October Release Set called Christmas Cuties.
 Don't forget, there will be two Preview Day Mini Hops on the C.C. Designs Blog...one today and one tomorrow. Be sure to leave a comment on each DT post for ALL Preview Days for a chance at winning a $15 Gift Certificate to the C.C. Designs Store! The two winners will be announced on the C.C. Designs Blog on Thursday. 
Happy Hopping!
