Silent Night

Hey, made this card to use a paper mum didn't quite know what to do with. Saw the I is for Icy challenge on the ABC Christmas challenge blog and throught it would fit in well.

Firstly, I cut the paper from the Forever Friends 'A Christmas Tale' paper pack to fit the card blank, folding the top edge over the back. I then stamped the santas' sleigh image flying onto the moon and the greeting in the bottom left corner; I used the Papermania clear stamps 'Sleigh' set and the Versafine onyx black ink to stamp them. I then embossed them both with clear embossing powder to give them a raised effect.
To finish, I used a glue pen and glamour dust to add snow to the trees and snow, and added glossy accents to the stars and snowflakes to make them shine. Finally, I added three snowflake buttons to the top righthand corner. Simple but effective :)
