It’s been a while that I was able to sit down and actually make a card and I finally got a chance to yesterday to make this gatefold card.
I used four different sets of framelits and thinlits to make this card – lol. I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.
I cut the diamond shape in the centre using the Layering Square Framelits. The snowflake is from the Season Layers Thinlits, the trees from the Card Front Builder Thinlits and the stars from the Detailed Santa Thinlits all from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. The Designer Series Paper is the Delightful Daisy DSP and the sentiment is from Santa’s Sleigh.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
Santa’s Sleigh is a carry over stamp set from last year’s Holiday catalogue and I was so happy that it is available as I really didn’t get a chance to make too many cards with it last year but hope to do so this year.
We made this card at my Christmas in August class this past weekend using the set and I love how it turned out with the use of Tranquil Tide and the Delightful Daisy DSP.
We used the Basket Weave technique for the detailed side fold. The reindeer were cut using the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. As I turned the glimmer paper face down on the cutting pad, they are facing left rather than to the left.
We inked up the wreath stamp with Versamark and then with Tranquil Tide and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. As long as you use your Versamark with the color you wish to have embossed, there is no need to purchase the colored embossing powder. The Versamark creates the stickiness to allow the embossing and simply use clear embossing powder to heat set. They were then cut out with the co-ordinating thinlits.
The trees and bows were all cut out with the co-ordinating framelits from the Santa Sleigh’s Thinlits Finally we created some snow on a strip of Whisper White card stock and used the Fine Tip Glue pen to add some adhesive and then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds.
Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
Woo Hoo another post! The mail boxes in our complex had been broken into so our mail was being held at the Post Office. I hadn’t had a chance to pick it up until yesterday and what a wonderful surprise to receive this beautiful Christmas card from Sharon, one of my team members. Thank you, Sharon!
Sharon used Emerald Envy for the card base with strips of Presents and Pinecones Designer Washi Tape. The sentiment is from Holly berry Happiness and of course it’s topped off with the sweet reindeer from Santa’s Sleigh.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
Wow, I’m back with a post today! This is only the second card I have made using the Santa’s Sleigh bundle and I am so excited that it will be a carry over as with many of the other stamps that I have still unused! I absolutely love it as there are endless projects you can make with all the stamps and thinlits.
I had so much fun making this as it started out to be a very clean and simple card and when I began playing with some of the stamps, the reindeer got accessorized and the sleigh filled with holiday packages! If you don’t have this bundle, it is really one you may want to get as a bundle before the end of the month.
I used a Marina Mist card base with the Whisper White panel embossed with the Woodland embossing folder. The sleigh is Marina Mist. The sleigh overlay and the reindeer is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. I used several retired items, the Cherry Cobbler Candy Dot for the reindeer’s nose, the silver cord for the rein and the 1/8″ Silver ribbon on the packages. The sentiment is from Hang Your Stocking (also being carried over) stamped in Marina Mist.

This is the best time of the year as we celebrate the holidays and in less than two weeks, we will be celebrating the best stamping time of the year as we start 2017 with the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration!
I will be arranging to get copies of the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration to all my regular customers. If you live in Canada and do not have a demonstrator, please email me at email@example.com and I will be pleased to send you one.
Thanks for your continued support and happy stamping!
When the Holiday Catalogue came out, I wasn’t too keen on this Santa’s Sleigh bundle, but as time goes on and you see some fabulous samples, it became a must have! This is my first card using the bundle and I also had some Copper Foil and Copper Embossing Powder that hadn’t been used so it was a good opportunity to put them all together.
What do you think? I love how the Copper Foil and Embossing Powder! My base card is Soft Suede cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. The piece of Copper Foil is cut 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and the Very Vanilla piece is 5 1/4″ x 4″.
I used the tree thinlit from the co-ordinating Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits die and cut it out from the centre of the 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece before layering the Very Vanilla piece over it. It saves on the Copper Foil as no one sees the layered foil piece. Great way to save on paper!
The Very Vanilla layer is rolled through the Big Shot using the Soft Falling Embossing Folder – it has been the most used embossing folder for my Christmas cards! I next stamped the two trees with Versamark on the Very Vanilla and embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder – so beautiful! The Copper Foil tree is popped up using dimensionals and I cut the tiny stars using the star thinlit from the same thinlit set and adhered with dimensionals.
I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from the set with Versamark and embossing with the Copper Embossing Powder.
This bundle is available for $59.25 with the stamp set in photopolymer (see page 24 of the Holiday Catalogue).
