Another Gatefold Frame Card

Click on images to enlarge

I enjoyed making the first one of these cards so much that I was itching to do another. This one is for my sister and her family - I love making cards for my sister because she really apprecitates the work and effort that I put in and treasures them. The more tactile I make it the more she loves it and this card is also ideal for two challenges:

TGIF - Santa Claus is coming to town
Joanna Sheen Forum - decoupage

I've used stardream card again - this time it's mars and ivory. The image is Joanna Sheen victorian decoupage and the backing paper is from Joanna's Victorian Christmas CD.
The front of the card has been kept very simple the two cuttlebug corners cut out of gold mirri card, the Father Christmas and poinsettia stamps were stamped onto a spare piece of ivory stardream with versamark and embossed with halo gold ep. The centre bracts of the poinsettia have been coloured in with a sakura clear stardust pen. The stamps are: Santa - Rubberstampede and Poinsettia - Craft stamper.
Thank you for visiting today
