Up on the Rooftops


Meet today's card.
Just a simple one filled with some fun.

I began by masking the side panel with a piece of scrap paper.  I punched a circle as well to represent the moon as I sponged with my Distress inks to fill in the masked area.
Leaving the mask in place, I stamped the trees using black Memento ink.
I removed the mask and stamped this fun flying Santa in his sleigh that I just picked up from The Stampin Place, with more black ink.  Added a simple sentiment and then mounted the whole piece onto navy cardstock.
That's it...pretty simple eh?


Thanks for coming by and taking a look.

I love how you incorporated the moon into the scene, Karen. It wouldn't give the same feel without it
