Skating Santa

   I have made this card for a child.
   I matted and layered paper printed from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse inserts CD ROM and pale blue (not according to the photo!) mirri card onto white card.Using Spellbinders dies I cut trees from whitewash core'dinations cardstock and then sanded and glittered them before fixing them to the card with glue gel. I added flowersoft to the snow.
   The image is from the Giordano Studio stamp 'Love this Christmas' from Joanna Sheen and was coloured using Promarkers. I then sewed seed beads onto all the falling snow marks before matting it onto pale blue mirri card cut out using a Spellbinders lacy oval die. This was then attached to the card.
