Santa and his Sleigh

Hello my crafting friends, hope this finds you all safe and well? Thank you for visiting me today I do love reading all your comments.

Now I shall be off here for a while as I have a lot to finish for Sheena and I am going away at the weekend so I will be back before long and I hope you will be too!

Today's Christmas card is another fairly simple one to do, I started by placing some Music Paper on the base card, distressing the edges before sticking it down, then out of a very old paper pad I found some paper with a snowy tree scene over it so I cut out a small piece, distressed the edges and placed this at an angle in the middle of my card.

I printed a picture from the Victorian Christmas CD, this was of an old time father Christmas but in sepia tone so I placed this in the top right corner, in the top left corner I added some pine spruce with pine cones and I tied some jingle bells with red ribbon in a bow to place on top.

In the Range I found a little bag of wooden reindeer so I used these on the card to act as if they were flying through the forest. Santas sleigh was die cut using Red Miri card.

To finish the card I added a little Deco Art snow writer on the sleigh, around the forest paper and on the pine spruce.

Tattered Lace Music Paper ( free with magazine)
