That One Gift - Poem by Grace Baxter

December 09, 2010

SLEIGH RIDE - Framed Card

I love this old-fashioned scene. This Sleigh Ride card is 5" x 5" and has a raised frame. In keeping with the traditional design, I used the standard Christmas colors of red, white and green.

This card was not difficult to make. The card base is dark red. The white sparkly background is from Core'dinations. As usual, the hardest part was deciding what colours to use.

Some of the cut pieces are very tiny so this design works best when made at least 5" in size.

In assembling the card, I found it was best to pop the horse/sleigh and people for a 3D effect. The top green frame is also raised by dimensionals.

I experimented a little with fonts in order to give the message the right look. It's amazing what a difference a font can make to the 'feel' of the card.

Both verses are printed on one page and printed on cardstock rather than just computer paper. This gives a much nicer look and adds body.
