Christmas Card Club challenge #13 - Santa's Sleigh

 Hi Crafters,

I'm so late on parade this time - I hope the CCC ladies and Kate will forgive me for taking so long to join in with her challenge this time.

Kate has chosen the theme of SANTA'S SLEIGH 

I have used a very old Papermania stamp that has been in my stash since I first began card making I should think. I've used Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold embossing powder for the image and sentiment. Gold mirri card and gold glitter card for the layers and a few gems to finish. As I was late playing along I thought I had better make the most of the opportunity to create four cards this time.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

CHNC Every Saturday - #600 ATG Christmas
Unicorn Challenge - #77 Monochrome
Rudolph Day Challenge - ATG Christmas

All the crafty shopping channels are starting to show their Christmas goodies this week, I wonder how long I will resist the impulse to buy more stash? I really don't need anything Christmas themed at all but you know what it's like, each new release has something just a little bit different to what you already have that teases you into buying it. I really like the new Carnation Crafts Christmas collection but it is very expensive I will just admire it from afar :o)

Thank you for visiting and for all your comments recently, I appreciate and enjoy reading each and every one of them.

A beautiful collection of Christmas cards Lorraine, your gold embossed sleigh is very elegant.
I know what you mean about the new Christmas launches, I'm trying to resist but don't know how long it will last!

These are all so beautiful - your embossing is perfect.

I finally got around to using the Chloe flower dies I've seen you use. Took me a few minutes to work out how you had managed to get the effect - a few snips later I had it!

Wow Lorraine what beauties. I too have this stamp, bought probably around the same time as you bought yours. Its a wonderful image and perfect for the challenge. Love all that gold embossing, makes for a very elegant and stylish card, Kate 💖

So elegant in the gold embossing Lorraine.

Like you was tempted by the Carnation release but the prices seem to be going through the roof, not may one day specials seem to be under £100 any more.

Hi Lorraine,
these are very gorgeous cards and very beautiful design also.
Love that sleigh stamp it looks gorgeous in the gold embossing.
I agree not watching any of the selling channels as I have so much Christmas, but I was enjoying the new designs at Craftstash of Woodware stamps on pr-order.
Not sure if I will stop myself buying I am trying too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
