Dashing through the snow.....

..... in a one horse open sleigh.....

Here's a festive card I created using the Rummage Bin Primitive Christmas stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Although the paper I chose was very vintage and distressed, I decided to add some bling and glittered the sleigh and chipboard embellishment. It's very easy to add glitter to your stamped images. First I stamped the sleigh in brown ink and then I used a glue pen to colour in the image. I sprinkled glitter over top and let it dry before tapping off the extra.

I also pulled out the dusty sewing machine and stitched around all the layers in the card.
