I decided to play around with the Merry Monday Challenge and build a design using some stamps in my collection from Close To My Heart. The challenge was to create a card using skis, skates or a sled. Now I know there has to be some sleds or skates somewhere in my collection of stamps and dies, but I was coming up empty. But I had a sleigh and decided to start there and create some layers of stamping.
I love the background designs in these stamped images. The sentiment and rails were silver embossed and the trees were stamped and then cut and adhered to the card to give a little dimension. I lowered the red carriage a bit, and it reminded me of the red carriage type sled we had for my daughter when she was a toddler. I can still imagine her bundled in her sea foam green snow suit in that little sleigh as my husband pulled her around the yard.
Hope you find some time to create today, and maybe even summon up a happy memory of your own.
