Santa and Sleigh

I attended StampFest this past weekend and had a great time.  One of the booths in which I plunked down quite a bit of cash was the Impression Obsession booth.  I had five die/die sets on my list, three of which I purchased.  However, I also bought about six or seven dies NOT on my list.  Two of them are on this card:

One of the cards on their sample board was actually a tag using this Santa and Sleigh die -- and that sold me.  I learned a little trick for making snow drifts using a crimper from that tag.  I embellished a bit from the tag by making a second drift and tucking in the stand of evergreen trees behind it.  Some white gel added some snow to the branches of the trees.  I used that same white gel pen for the stars.

I'm entering this card in the Impression Obsession Christmas in July challenge.

Cardstock:  Recollections 110 lb. White, The Paper Studio Black; MFP Stamp Shop Snow Storm Smooth and Deep Olive
Ink:  Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire
Accessories:  IO Santa die, IO Fir Tree Border die, Ranger sponge applicators, Sakura white gelly roll pen, Crimper

Oh, Lois, what fun to have attended StampFest! And I would have done some major damage too - hehe!! I love this Christmas card, and what a great Santa and sleigh die! I love your "crimped" snow idea...looks great, and I love the evergreens! Beautiful card, and it's a reminder I need to get going myself on these! Hugs!
