Nighttime Sleigh Ride - Stampin' Up! Sleigh Ride Edgelits

  We had a great time on Tuesday at my stamp club.  I got to show all of my stamping ladies a lot of new Holiday catalog products and we made some cute cards.  We made one fall card, one Halloween and a Christmas card.  I'm totally going out of order as far as seasons go to show this one today but who cares right?


   The Sleigh Ride edgelits make such cute winter scenes.  The delicate shapes are perfect for giving a little bit of color to make them pop against a darker background.

  The card base is Night of Navy and using the coordinating Jingle All the Way stamp set we stamped some snow in white craft ink.

  The 2 white layers are Shimmery White cardstock which is an often overlooked supply in the catalog.  It has a nice light shimmer and takes ink differently than then smooth Whisper White so it works nicely for watercoloring.  After cutting out the 2 layers we used ink pads and blender pens to color in the sleigh and tree (or trees).

  Real Red, Garden Green and Soft Suede were used for the coloring.

  A line of 2 way glue across the top edge of both layers and a bit of Dazzling Diamonds adds to the snowy sparkle of the card.

  The design is finished off with a sentiment stamped in Night of Navy and either the green striped ribbon or red striped ribbon (they come together in a pack so you get 5 yards of each....I love having options!)

    Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
