'Twas the Night Before Christmas...


It's snowing!!!
Yes, it finally started snowing here today and now I can really get into the winter mood. :)

Last night I made another Christmas card (and I still don't have enough), but this one was made specially for my little nephew. :)

I had a very good idea for this card after seeing some wonderful similar ones last year, here.I knew I had to make a little Santa scene. :)

It's been a while since I bought this gorgeous Stampavie, Sarah Kay - Noel Santa stamp and I really wanted to use it, so I though this was a perfect opportunity. Two of the papers, which I used for the wall of the house and for the roof are Whimsy Stamps, Very Merry; the one used for the glass on the door is Basic Grey - "Wassail".
I used one border punch for the roof and added some Stickles glitter glue for the snow effect (on the roof and the door ), I also added one silver ribbon (on the roof and at the bottom of the card) for the same purpose.
I stamped one Whimsy Stamps decoration stamp from the Christmas Tree in Words set designed by Raindropecho Designs. I stamped it three times and covered it with another glitter glue, to give the effect of a Christmas light decoration on the front of the house. I just added one small ribbon bow as a door decoration.

The image, as usual was coloured with watercolour pencils.

I truly hope my nephew likes his card! :)
