Tropical Santa’s Sleigh

November 25, 2016 No Comments

I hope you’ve had a lovely holiday with family and/or friends!  We’ve visited with my daughter rather than having her home as there has been both football and basketball games to juggle.  It was a nice quiet day.  We had hoped to hook up with the rest of the family over Facetime but the reception was not good on our end. 🙁 This morning was for a bit of shopping followed by afternoon band practice.  While she’s practicing, I’m posting.  When we’re both done,  we’ll head to dinner.  Speaking of shopping, don’t forget the Online Extravaganza as you get started on or finish up your holiday shopping!  Lots of gift possibilities for others and for you.

Last week while I was typing up a post, I kept mistyping “napkin” as “napking”.  With all the head shaking that went on, I just couldn’t shake the thought of creating a tropical Christmas card.  So today, I’m sharing my go at creating something for those of you who live in warmer climes or just want to shake up the traditional.

I’ve used the Santa’s Sleigh bundle

Santa's Sleigh with a Pop of Paradise tropical Christmas card - front - from theartfulinker.com

and combined it with Pop of Paradise.

My flamingos from Pop of Paradise were inked with Melon Mambo and then cut out by hand.

The wreaths are images from Santa’s Sleigh.  They were inked with Cucumber Crush and stamped on Whisper White before cutting them out with Santa’s Sleigh framelits.

The stars from Santa’s Sleigh were inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Silver.  Remember to rub the card with your Embossing Buddy to keep stray bits of Embossing Powder from sticking in unwanted places.

The card has three panels in Soft Sky..

It measures 5-1/2″ x 11″ and is scored along the landscape edge at 3″ and 7″.

Then, I added an additional piece to the front/left side that measures 4″ x 5-1/2″ so that I have three full panels.

The first two panels were embossed with the Softly Falling folder.

I decided not to emboss the far right panel so that it would be easy to write a message on the back of the card.

To have the desired side of the designer paper to face the opposite direction, make sure that it is not the side next to the cutting edge.  For me that meant the diagonal stripe from Pop of Pink designer paper was not next to the die.

For the Silver Glimmer paper runners, I first peeled the backing paper off of my Glimmer Paper piece.  This time when die cutting for the runners, I laid the sleigh die over non-sparkly side of the Glimmer Paper.  The Fine Tip Glue Pen is perfect for adhering this delicate piece.

As I attached my three pairs of Pop of Paradise flamingos with Dimensionals, I also ran a length of Silver Metallic Thread behind and in front of the pairs to mimic reins.  The knotted end was tucked under the sleigh and adhered to a Glue Dot.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my tropical Christmas card using Santa’s Sleigh and Pop of Paradise.
