A Letter to Santa Claus.

Good evening Friends,

Hope you are all well and happy.   The weather is definitely Autumnal now,  cold and damp in the mornings and the birds are very busy eating the berries from our trees.     Tonight  I would like to share a card I made for Sue ans Harvey of Imagination Crafts in September 2015, for one of their shows on Hochanda T.V.

Fold the white ready creased card down the centre crease line, making a 7"x7" base card.   Place the front of the card inside the snowflake embossing folder and emboss.   Cut a smaller piece of black card and put it in the same folder and emboss.   Punch each corner with the EK Success corner punch.

Gently rub the Alchemy waxes over the outside edges of the black card.

Next take some white card and lay the Christmas List stencil onto it and using the Black, Antique gold, Red, Green, Orange oxidized & White gold  Starlight paints, dab the colours through the design.   Remove the stencil and leave to dry.    Then, replace the stencil back on the dry card and draw around the design with a black pen.   Remove the stencil and cut out each piece.   Using the stencil as a guide, glue each piece in the correct positions on the snowflake patterned card,

Cut out the signs for the post box from white card and colour them with the pebble shore  MDF paint, to dull down the bright white of the card.   Add  the days and times the post will be collected, using a black fine liner pen.

Add an address and stamp on the letter.   Cut two pieces of white card to represent snow drifts add some detail sparkle to the snow and glue to the bottom  left and right of the snowflake card, then fix  the snowflake card  behind  the four  punched, black corners.   

Add some Detail Sparkle to the  post box and the lamp.   Add a flame and some rays of light from the lamp, using the gold, red and orange Starlight paints.

That's all folks, have a good Thursday and I will be back soon with another card.
