Holiday Sleigh Ride by Jean Okimoto


Attach adhesive label paper or a sticker sheet to cream felt and diecut the horse from the new Horse and Sleigh set.  The paper backing stabilizes and felt and keeps adhesives from saturating the fabric.  Wrap red crochet thread or floss around the horse's neck and tie a knot.  Tie another knot about 2" away - it'll be hidden by the front of the sleigh when the card is assembled.

Cut the tree layers - from the new Snowman House Frame - from the green 6x6 in the Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad.  Assemble the tree and create a trunk with a small section of a flat toothpick.


Highlight the texture of the Kraft Woodgrain Paper (it's actually cardstock) with Pearlescent Chocolate Brilliance and an ink pod.  The pod skims the surface of the woodgrain cardstock and emphasizes the design.  Dry the ink and diecut the sleigh.

Cut the Garland 6x6 print with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangle die and attach it to a side-folded cream A2 card. 

Attach the horse.  Adhere the knotted floss with a drop of glue.  Attach the tree and sleigh - use foamtape for the top tree layer.  Add the translucent white Christmas Fairy Dewdrops.

Cut an A2-sized layer of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.


Christmas seems to arrive earlier and earlier each year!  Hope you're enjoying - and being inspired by - our Design Team's holiday projects.  

Thanks for visiting!
