Waiting for Santa's Sleigh

Looks like I'm feeling Christmassy this week, here comes another card! This card is a CASE of a card I saw at Made by You last week that Pat, the owner had made. I saw the card and HAD to get the stamp set :). Oops how many times has that happened? The stamp set is by Creative Expressions, they have a set of Stylish Christmas stamps, I think this is number 3. A Spoonful of Sugar's challenge this week is Christmas, so this is my challenge entry.

I folded an A4 piece of card into three and then cut it down into a square to make a concertina card, I used the rest of the cardstock to cut 3 squares to stamp onto and then matted them onto silver Mirri card. I embossed the three different sizes of tree onto the squares, as well as the sleigh and heat embossed them with black sparkle. I used a post-It to cut out a mask for the moon and used watercolour Stargazers paint on the background. I love this card, I just need to find a small square envelope for it!
