Santa has been..................

Snow-  Pine - Mahogany

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Santa bought all you had wished for we had a great day with family and plenty of excitement Christmas Eve with our grandson who was sooooooooo excited that he hardly slept all night and crept into our bed at 2.30 am telling me "Santa's been" bless him I did get him back in his own bed but I really don't think he slept although he was quite!!.  In the morning there were sledge tracks in the snow and footprints to the door.............much excitement by one little boy ..........

Now I made this card for DH with the theme above which is the Gingersnap Creations Colour Challenge GC84 and I apologise for posting after Christmas but with the last min mad rush I forgot to post... Tag was made using DI aged mahogany, pine needle peeled paint I made the moon after applying aged mahogany around a circle, stamped and embossed forest with green glitter embossing powder (one in my stash with no name)  (also  stamped trees in the background with pine needles) and because it was rough to the touch by dragging embossing ink over them and dusting with white fine line embossing powder this gave the effect of snow on the trees I was really very pleased how this technique turned out as I was just experimenting..... Snowflakes were stamped and embossed in white and Santa stamped and embossed in black, I dry embossed white card with snowflakes (if you look really hard you can see them lol) and mounted all onto Burgundy (nearest I had to mahogany).

Ingredients Tim Holtz stamp snowflakes and DI 's and Tag; Stampin' Up! Card, punches, merry christmas stamp white embossing powder; Santa stamp and trees Creative Expressions; Sizzix Embossing Boards snowflakes

Also I'm sorry to say I have had to change the way comments are received on this blog and have switched on word verification hope you will bear with me on this as I have had some very weird and not very nice comments left so hope this will deter them. 

Bye for now
