Santa on his Sleigh

Here's today's card -

The image is half of the Creative Expressions Believe Singles Stamp. I stamped it twice onto Milk Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Christmas Red Sparkle Embossing Powder. I cut one out around the outer line and one around the inner line. I mounted the smaller on top with 3D Foam.

I stamped the Newsprint Stars A6 Background using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Barn Door Distress Ink. I cut another Matting Basics B die out of Ruby Card.

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations New Year Dove Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Barn Door.

I tied a bow using Red/Ivory Striped Grosprain Ribbon and added a Bronze Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown addding some Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Berry Sparkle PVA around the edges.

Don't forget that the Blog Hop is still going - details are here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

    Beautiful card today.
    I've just caught up with your show you did with Nigel - great cards and demos - you didn't even know that the later show wasn't going ahead - what a shame.
    All the samples were amazing!

  26. Morning Julia,
    These singles are just so versatile... It's great to be able to make a range of different cards from the same stamp - I get bored making lots of identical cards!
    Love the red too. Ruth

  30. Hi Julia

    Lovely festive card. Both stamp sets you've used are very nice. I especially like the background stamp as it can be used for cards other than Christmas. Will be starting my Christmas cards soon so these cards are great inspiration
