My girlfriend gifted me a few old Christmas cards from the 1950's. Each one had a bit of a letter inside and were signed with the date. She knew I would love the vintage look of them and indeed I did.
My family raised horses, and we always had a huge old antique sleigh in the front garden over Christmas.This card reminded me of those past times and I do think the passengers in this horse drawn sleigh look as though they are riding through a Winter Wonderland.
I then popped it onto an easel card base as it just seemed to call out for center stage! I like the look of it on the easel card, and I am actually quite pleased with the whole result.
The Dashing Through The Snow die is by Memory Box. I did cheat a bit and used a white pen to add back in the centers of the letters as the parts were so teensy I could not manage to glue them back in. Once I had gone over them a couple of times to get them white enough, I painted over them with Art Glitter Glue and sprinkled some white glitter over them. They then finally looked almost like I had glued the teensy bits back in!
