The Night Before Christmas

I’ve had a lot of fun making cards for Christmas these last couple of months. I really love the Little Agenda Santa and reindeer as they are so playful. The small size makes them quick to colour, which is definitely a bonus when making lots of cards.

I wanted to create a scene card, with Santa and his reindeer flying over the city. I chose to die cut a cover up frame from white card, then I coloured in the panels with distress oxides. 

I die cut an additional frame, then layered both onto a card base. This adds a little depth but not too much.

I added the top panel within the frame, along with the Santa in his sleigh and three reindeer, popped up with foam tape. I used a black fine-liner to draw in the reins.

For the panel at the bottom, I added some die cut buildings from the Mama Elephant City Sidewalks stamp set. I love the scripty sentiment stamps that are included in the set, which look like smoke rising from the chimneys. I heat embossed these in white on the panel, then added it to the card to finish.

I think this design would work well with a single stitched rectangle panel or frame too.
