Waiting for Santa

   For this Christmas card I began by matting and layering red snowflake paper and yellow core'dinations cardstock onto white card. I then matted a strip of red and green paper also onto yellow core'dinations cardstock and tied a ribbon round the bottom of it before attaching it to the card.
   The image, from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Designs Christmas stamps, was coloured using Promarkers and distress inks. It was then matted and layered onto two shades of yellow core'dinations cardstock before attaching at an angle to the card. I then glittered the flame.
   Finally a sentiment and die cut ivy leaves were used to frame the image.
