Fantasy Stampers Midway Motivation - Traditional Christmas

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

It is Saturday and we are off to the  Victorian Festival of Christmas at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard they even have a  Green Santa, apparently it is traditional. I will try to get some photos.

This is a first for me this is the midway motivation card for the current challenge on the Fantasy Stampers Challenge blog and the theme is Traditional Christmas. So I have made a card with a Santa and a sleigh . I suppose this is the opposite to my  traditional card last week.

This is quite a straight forward card. The background was made with ink and a post-it note mask. The stars were stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a silver powder. The houses and trees were cut with a Tattered Lace die set that I got with one of  their magazines. The sentiment came free with a set of Christmas stamps from a magazine. 

This is a Trimcraft stamp and it came free with another magazine and a rather nice paper pad. He was stamped in black ink that was then heat embossed with a clear powder. I coloured the image with my Promarkers. 

I like how this card came together I have been wanting to use the stamp and  dies for some time. 

I will let you know what the Victorian Festival is like. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
