Flying Reindeer and A Jolly Rider

Welcome to a brand new week.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was fantastic.  It was busy and I must admit I am a little tired today so this will probably be another short blog.  Before I get to that I want to thank everyone who came to the Crop Party on Saturday for coming.  I really enjoyed see all of you. 

Today's card is again a Christmas card.  That really is my favorite holiday and I love making cards for it.  So let's get started on this one.

 The designer paper with the cute pine cones is one I picked up at a scrapbook store a while back.  I used all of it.  I loved the pine cones and the fact they were glittered made them even better.  The rest of the materials used are from Stampin' Up!.  The base card is Old Olive.  I felt it matched the sprigs on the dsp nicely.  I then put a layer of Real Red on it.  My stamp and greeting were stamped on Whisper White and placed on the Red.  I then placed the piece of dsp at the bottom.  To tie the two together, I added a border of Old Olive punched with the eyelet ribbon punch with a piece of Real Red grosgrain ribbon across it.  This hides the meeting of the papers nicely and adds a touch of class to the card.

I used the spotlight technique on this card.  That is where you pick one part of the card to stand out.  In this case I chose Santa and his sleigh.  This stamp is from the retired set Wandering Words.  First I stamped this entire stamp in Close to Cocoa on Whisper White.  Then I stamped the image again on a piece of scrap Whisper White in Real Red.  Using my 1" circle punch, I punched out the Santa and sleigh.  Now comes the hard part.  I attached my punched piece to the White carefully lining up the reins of the sleigh so they seem like one.  It is attached with a dimensional allowing it to stand out a little from the card.  I guess it really isn't that hard to do but I am always worried that I will not line it up right.  

Well that's it for today.  I am going to go put my feet up for a while and then work on another card.  I hope you all have a Marvelous Monday.  Thanks for dropping in and please come back tomorrow.
