Night Before Christmas Santa Sleigh Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a card with you that features the products in the Night Before Christmas Suite.   This is a super fun suite and just screams Christmas.  My design is based on this weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge this week.  The Sketch challenge this week is a two weeks challenge.  Here's a look at my card.  

Here's a look at the sketch that inspired my card for today.

Tips & Tricks: 

For the main focal image on the card I used a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I did a little ink blending at the top in matching ink.  I did this to enhance the top portion of the cardstock to make it appear more of an ombre' look.  Once I had the ink blending dried I flicked on some Frost White Shimmer Paint.  After the Shimmer Paint dried I added a few white dots with a white gel pen, this added a little more to the background of the card that can give the look of snow or stars.  I added that to a piece of the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I also added two strips going up the side in different widths.  
Once I had the background done, I added a moon and a few stars punched out of Sparkle Glimmer Paper using the Twinkle Builder Punch.  I attached the moon with mini dimensionals and the stars where attached with a little liquid glue.  
After getting the moon and stars attached to the card I then die cut Santa and the Sleigh four different times.  Once out of Basic Black cardstock and three other times out of scraps.  I then layered the scrap pieces together and then layered the basic black one on top.  I then added Wink a Stella on top of the entire piece to add a little shimmer.  I then popped it up with dimensionals.  On the last reindeer I added a red rhinestone to make him Rudolph.  
  I finished my card by adding the sentiment to the bottom of the card in Tuxedo Black ink.  This way I tied in the basic black to the card.  I hope that you have enjoyed my little card today as much as I had fun creating it.  
Happy Stampin'
