Sleigh Ride for Crafty Individuals

This fabulous stamp popped through my post-box recently along with some others that are all new to the Crafty Individuals shop. I have already shown one card using this stamp - here is another with softer colours.
I fell right in love with this one and knew I wanted to make some fairly simple and quick cards with it to add to my collection (which grew quite rapidly and have now all been sent out).
I blended some distress inks onto tissue paper and stamped this lovely image over it adhering it to card with spray fixative.
Using the pennant on the edge die and Core’dinations paper I made a border.P1150041
And added a gold embossed star and a computer generated sentiment.

CI 398 Santa’s Sleigh Ride – Crafty Individuals

Distress Crackle paint – Ranger

The excitement is mounting in our family can you believe it's only six sleeps? I hope you are well on the way to getting finished. My cards are all written now, some still need delivering and just a couple of last minuter things to buy and wrap. Good old M&S on-line helped this week (I really don't fancy trying to get through the crowds at the Sandhurst store - it's a nightmare).

Sorry not been on the blogs this week, but hope to catch up soon. I am picking the girls up from school today so that we can make flapjacks (one of our family Christmas traditions), so that will be fun.

Take care.
