Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I created. I recently received an order I placed for a couple of Slimline dies from Kat Scrappiness. I had been looking forward to receiving the Cityscape Slimline die set, so of course I wanted to play. As I wanted to do something different to what I have seen created with this die set, I decided to create a Christmas card.

I used the largest rectangle die from Lawn Fawn's Large Slimline with Sliders die set to die cut the base panel for my card.  I then used Distress Oxide inks in various shades of blue (colors included in supply list below), masking a circle for the moon. After I had blended all the inks, I then splattered the background using white paint.

I die cut the Slimline Cityscape die set from black and yellow cardstock and layered them together. I adhered this to the bottom of the blue background panel.

I added Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer die which is an older Cheery Lynn Designs die. 

To finish off the front of the card, I added the sentiment which is from The Ton's Easy Expressions - Holiday stamp/die set.

For the inside of the card, I added the Santa's Sleigh and Reindeer to the top portion of the card.

I added a border along the bottom of the card which is from Lawn Fawn's Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders die set.

I added the two sentiments to the centre of the card. The first is from Mama Elephant's Santa's Sleigh stamp set, the second is from MFT Stamps Bitty Holiday Wishes stamp set.
