Santa's Sleigh Christmas Card

Hello Peaches and happy Wednesday! I have a quick post for you today as I have been super busy teaching this week. But you know me; I just HAVE to fit in some crafting time, lol. Today's card is a "bit" of Christmas (sorry, not sorry). I just can't help myself. I'm a huge fan of Christmas and as I've shared before with you, there never seems to be enough time to make holiday cards for everyone and you KNOW I'm not going to send store bought. Those are contraband in ny house, lol.



So on to today's card. I'm featuring a favorite called Santa's Sleigh from last year's holiday catalog that rightfully made its way into our annual catalog. This stamp set and dies comes jam packed with beautiful images and sentiments, everything one would find in Santa's sleigh.

I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4", and I used the brand new Winter Wonder textured impressions embossing folder, orienting it towards the top right of my panel. I like to offset my images because I feel like it gives it more character and interest. After I embossed my snowflake I die cut a few gold snowflakes in various shapes and sizes from the Seasonal Layers die set. The last part of die cutting was to die cut the sleigh out of Real Red cardstock. There are two layers to the sleigh in this die set. I cut both layers in Real Red to create a textured look. I just love how vibrant and rich this red is. It's exactly the type of red I always picture for Christmas.

I stamped a few star images from the set in Emerald Envy on a small strip of Whisper White. This piece ends up being a bit hidden though in the background. I also took a small strip of Real Read cardstock and cut a few slivers of Gold Glimmer paper to create glittery stripped patterned paper. I love creating my own patterned paper by stamping or adding other colors/layers of cardstock. It allows me to add my own creative flare to my projects.

Lastly, I assembled my sleigh, accents, and sentiment. I added some Gold Mini Sequin Trim for some bling, and that finished off my card. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post!
