Christmas Sleigh

I immediately thought of this sleigh image by Tim Holtz when I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  It was stamped on Very Vanilla in Cherry Cobbler.  I love the retro look of this greeting and it was heat embossed in Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla and the end flagged.  I wanted a patterned paper on the bottom of the card and landed on this plaid as I thought it would stay in keeping with the retro feel of the images.  I love this plaid paper and have used it on a number of holiday cards and outdoor themed cards (fishing specifically).  This was my last remaining bit, so I'm also joining in at Pixie's Crafty Workshop as I am using this treasured snippet.  I played with a number of options for the horizontal trim and the winner was this strip of Basic Gray.  A few rhinestones bring a little bling and repeat the touch of gray.




Happy Stamping,
Dana

  3. Plaid is such a quintessential Christmas image, I think. I love how you combined your plaid paper with the fun sleigh ride image and a great Christmas sentiment! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. I like this a lot! Gorgeous stamping and sketch! The plaid is very trendy right now - I was looking through my stash and I couldn't find any in Christmas colours. Guess I'll have to go shopping!

  7. Hi Dana! How lovely to see you in the Snippets Playground - and with such a lovely card too! Wonderful image and perfectly teamed up (get it?!) with the plaid paper and the flowing sentiment. Cherry Cobbler always looks so rich as well.

    Hugs

  10. This card has a lovely retro feel. The cranberry ink for the stamps, and the beautiful plaid paper you chose, both help make this card special.
