Penny Black Sleigh Ride

This is a cute little image from the Penny Black set called "Jolly Follies". I really like all the cute stamps in this set. I got it from Joan Fricker at Joan's Gardens.

Since this is a long image, I decided to make a card that would fit into a business size envelope. I cut my card stock 9 1/4" x 7 7/8" and folded it so it was 9 1/4" long. I used a piece of designer paper from the Signature Christmas stack by "My Minds Eye". It is framed on SU Bermuda Bay CS. The image was stamped with Memento black ink and colored with colored pencils and OMS. It was then cut out with long rectangle Nestabilities and matted on Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede card stock. Each layer is attached on dimensional tape. A Suede colored ribbon was added to the left side of the card. After the card was completed, I added some Polar White Flower Soft. These little guys needed to be having fun in the snow -- right! I purchased my Flower Soft from Joan's Gardens.

Have you started your Christmas card yet?
