RIC#47 Christmas Card

I really need to stick to making Christmas cards for the next couple of weeks, so didn't think I was going to participate in the current Runway Inspired Challenge given the blue & orange color profile of this ensemble.

But you know how sometimes a challenge gets in your head and you just can't let it go? When I saw this Santa sleigh & reindeer (part of a larger image that needed to be masked), I had a lightbulb moment and knew I could work this color palette into a holiday card.

I stamped & heat embossed the Santa sleigh first, then masked & colored the moon before masking it and inking the night sky.

The image panel was attached behind a window die cut and then adhered to the blue woodgrain wall.

The Hero Arts sentiment is one of the few wood mounted stamps I still have kicking around in a drawer.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. What a fabulous take Jacquie! Love all the masking :)

  2. Smarty pants! Only you could take that color scheme and make a Christmas card!

  3. Way to think outside the runway box and make a card that is so detail oriented. Your work on this is amazing.

  4. What a gorgeous non-traditional Christmas card! And it's a good thing you showed us the up close for that amazing heat embossing! Thanks for joining us at Runway Inspired Challenge!


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
