Hello! If you are like me, you are trying to get started on your holiday cards. Things are getting ready to get super hectic and in order to get ahead, I have started making cards to send out to family and friends.
Today, I have a Christmas card to share with you today using some amazing Mama Elephant products. It is a fun interactive card that just keeps delivering on the surprises! I used the adorable Santa's Sleigh, Me and My Yeti, Animal Parade, and Tea with Friends stamps and die sets to create a wintery, Christmas Eve night scene.
For the background, I used the Mama Elephant Galactic Cover Die and the On The Hills Die Set. I die cut a circle to create a mask for the moonlight ring around the moon then blended Distress Inks on Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I die cut a slightly smaller circle than the mask from Bristol Smooth Cardstock as well and painted a moon using Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors watercolor paint. I love the shimmery softness!
To make the card interactive, I used the Sunny Studios Sliding Window die. When you pull the tab at the top of the card, the front panel slides back, revealing another adorable addition to the scene.
I attached my images using foam tape and liquid glue. I used a strip of acetate to gift the illusion that the reindeer is flying and the effect is so neat! I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard and Gloss White to add details to some of the images. The Gloss White is perfect for reinforcing the snow falling.
I also decorated the inside of the card with more images that coordinate with the scene on the front. Thank you so much for stopping by! I will have another Christmas card to share this Saturday, November 3rd for my monthly blog contribution for Lawn Fawn. Be sure to stop back by then!
