I was inspired to make this Christmas card using this beautiful sleigh from the Flourishes Sleigh Ride set. I love this gorgeous set! It also comes with a regal looking reindeer and some lovely sentiments. A few other Christmas sets have caught my eye too from Flourishes! Hmm, If only money fell from the sky like snowflakes…I would own them all!!
I am so pleased with how this turned out. I love making long, tall cards! This one will fit in a business size envelope. I made this card with the Stamp Simply Challenge in mind which was to make a flat card, with no lumps or bumps for NO EXTRA Postage…well, the card is flat, there are no bows, brads, eyelets or primas etc, (layers are o.k. ) BUT, I realized after I had made it, that the long/tall aspect of the card might just require extra postage!! OOPS! I’m actually not sure, do any of you know? If you do can you tell me, because I find the whole postage issue quite confusing! I wish I could just have prepaid envelopes, of all sizes…wouldn’t that make things easier? 🙂
Here’s a close up of the sleigh. I stamped it with gold pigment ink, then embossed it with red tinsel embossing powder. What a wonderful sparkle this gave it! And I love how you can still see some of the gold in between the red tinsel.
