Santa's Sleigh

A new theme starts today at Allsorts challenge and it's Pauline's turn to host. She chose the theme of "Add a Sentiment" so you can share absolutely anything as long as it includes a sentiment. Hope you'll join in with us for your chance to win. This week our prize comes from Oakwood - a Polkadoodles sentiment stamp set and coordinating paper pad.

And here is what I made using a new to me stamp set - Santa's Sleigh by Colorado Craft Company. 


This stamp set is part of their big and bold collection and fits a slimline card, but I trimmed part of the image off and made a traditional A2 sized card. I just love this image! The sentiment is part of the same set

I stamped with Versafine Onyx ink and colored with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. Then inked the card with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink and colored up the trees in the background with the same ink.

A white Posca pen was used to flick some "snowflakes" onto the card. I added a strip of patterned paper from my stash and then tied some jute twine around. Finally I decided to add the die cut snowflakes made with Penny Black's Dancing Snowflakes die set. Frosted Lace stickles glitter was used on Santa's fur and the snow on the ground. Oh, I also used a corner rounder punch (similar option) on the bottom. 

Thanks so much for visiting!
