Clean and simple Sleigh Ride card


I must get back to blogging more frequently! It’s not like I’m short of projects - I still have most of the cards from my Christmas workshop to show you, and I was part of a shoebox swap in the morning with some of my team. 

For those who have never experienced a shoebox swap, it’s great fun; you take along a project for everyone to make. It means you get to use stamps and tools you may not have, and stamp in a different style from your own. The only rule for this one was that it had to be from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue. 


I was cunning… I mean organised… and took along the leftover Make & Takes from an early SU party, but I’ll show you the other projects over the next few days. This one was Tricia’s and I loved it - clean and simple with crisp lines but with a fun technique in there, too; to create the moon you simply punch with a circle punch, then taking the “negative” rather than the circle, punch again to create a crescent moon. You can’t tell from my picture, but it’s punched out of glimmer paper for extra sparkle.
