Santa & Reindeer & Elves - Oh MY!


This was a fun little card to make... I've still lovin' the Winterland stamp set from Basic Grey. Though I have to admit that I've been calling this Wonderland.... no idea WHY that is, but now I have it right... It's WINTERLAND!

I like the way the striped black & white paper from Figgy Pudding looks with the red background. I added some swirls & flourishes in black and highlighted them with stickles.



I'm adding to my Christmas Card list and will be picking one person from each post to add to the list.... if you would like to receive a Christmas card from me, just leave a comment on my cards posted between now and Christamas - one recipient will be chosen from each post!



Thanks for reading!

Oh wow - of course I would adore receiving a card from YOU. This card is great and my guess is who ever receives a card from you will be framing it! (I hope I'm one of the lucky ones).
