Santa & Reindeer Flying



Hello everyone from Simona

Here I am with my 1st December post for
This handmade card is so simple and quick  and you can
easily mass produce it. You really don't need much
to create special handmade cards for your loved ones...

Today on 6 of December we celebrate Saint Nicholas Day.
I read in a WikipediA (The Free Encyclopedia on the Web),
 this is a festival for children in many
countries in Europe (19 December in most Orthodox countries).



First I stamped the white cardstock with the snowflake 
background stamp. I used VersaMark pad and 
sprinkled clear embossing powder over it.
Then I heated the embossing powder with the heat gun.


For the moon I cut out a circle with the circle punch and
used the double sided tape to stick it onto the background cardstock.
Then I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink pad to sponge/color
the whole cardstock. After I finished coloring I removed the
circle and wiped gently the whole background with a clean paper tissue.


For the top layer I used quarter of an inch larger white cardstock
and a Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five die to cut out the window 
(you can use any die you have at home to cut out the window). 
Before I glued the top layer onto the card with 
3D square foams I dry embossed it with the 
dot folder and distress the edges with the Tim Holtz distress tool.
At the end I added Santa & Reindeer Flying cut out and stamped
Wishing you a magical Christmas sentiment on the inside 
of the card. I used the red cardstock for the Santa die and 
distressed the edges with distress ink black sooth. 



Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Simona
