Rudolph Days - Sleigh Card

Hello, I always like to participate in the Rudolph Days challenge.  It is a short challenge each month starting on the 25th and going till the end of the month.  It is designed to help you make some Christmas cards each month so you aren't swamped at the end of the year.  Here is the card I made for this month's challenge.

(Click on photos to enlarge.)

I used Versafine ink to stamp the sleigh (I LOVE this stamp!) on ivory paper and then used sparkle embossing powder (oh, yes, I LOVE sparkle embossing powder too!) over top of the blue ink.  It looks so pretty because it looks matte in some lights and sparkly in others.


I used an older sketch and some patterned papers to help make this card really festive.  All Christmas cards are festive, but I think they especially are a great place to use up patterned papers.  I added a brad and punched snowflake which doubles as my sentiment.


Supplies: Inkadinkado Susan Winget Sleigh Stamp, Versafine Deep Lagoon ink, Recollections Sparkle embossing powder, Crate Paper Peppermint 6x6 Patterned paper pad, Brad is My Mind's Eye, EK Success Snowflake punch, other cardstocks from my stash, Darice snowflake embossing folder.

I would love to participate in this challenges:
