Santa's Sleigh

Hello again. Welcome.

Here's today's card:


- Impression Obsession Santa & Reindeer die from pearlized paper, spritzed with Tattered Angels gold sprays. Adhered with Dimensional tape.

- Memory Box tree die from a snippet of silver, embossed with the TH poinsettia EF. Also on dimensional tape, and added more 'snow' after the trees were stuck down.

- American Crafts glitter paper with stars for sky

- torn white paper, using Sparkle n Sprinkle Cloud 9 for the snow drifts. (This Cloud 9 looks more like a glittered flocking than EP and I can't remember what Margaret at SnS explained to me about this product. It does look like snow though. I was pleased with it, and happy that I bought 2 small jars!)

- Elizabeth Craft sentiment sticker, colored with copics to pick up the blue of the sky.

Hope you like this one. I went downstairs early Sunday evening and worked like a little beaver trying to finish up some cards that I had in progress. I still have to get 4 images stamped and colored for the Loved Family VIP's - to take along with me to Florida. So that's one reason I'm trying to hurry with the cards I need to get in the mail. Thanks for visiting today, and many hugs.

It's a really beautiful card Mary, love the background paper. I used to have a pot of the Sprinkle N Sparkle fluffy stuff, not sure that is the real name lol, but it was fab and really created snow on my cards. It lasted forever too I think I had mine for about three years and used it on all my Xmas cards one year x

I think this very nice card is a scene I may be seeing around here. It came out lovely and I really like that snow drifts. Enjoy your day. Hope you get all your cards done.

Your scene is so pretty with the snow banks and Santa/reindeer flying through the night sky.
It looks just like Christmas Eve night.

I've been in a mad rush to get some more cards made, too. This last minute 'stuff' kills me with so many more things to do.

BTW Mary, go to the Tips and Techniques section of Sparkle N Sprinkle to see the many things you can do with the Cloud Nine Glitter! You can even color on top of it in a variety of ways. It's my favorite glitter right now - so versatile!
