Santa and Sleigh Scene

Good Morning Crafters

Monday morning again, it sure is coming around pretty quick.

Only 10 more Mondays before Christmas and the Design Team and I are all creating our Christmas Cards.
How are you doing making your own?

Today is a quick and easy tutorial from Mags to making those quick Christmas Cards that have the WOW factor.

Merry Christmas Trio Stencil
Santa and Sleigh Stencil
Black Stars Sparkle Medium
Golden Pine Sparkle Medium
Gold glossy card
Snowflake patterned card

 Use the sparkle medium and the stencils to create a little scene onto the patterned card.  You could add more trees if you wanted but I liked it with just one.

When dry matt the patterned card onto gold glossy card.

 Wrap some gold ribbon around the bottom of the scene you have created and attach to the front of a square card blank.

Add a bow, a sentiment and some gold gems to the top corners.

Thank you for Visiting!
