There’s not a whole lot of sleighing in the islands. Native Hawaiians enjoyed the sport of land sledding, and although there are a few contemporary athletes, it’s relatively obscure (something to do with the fact that accidents were often quite deadly.)
But the sleigh – or really The Sleigh – is such an iconic Christmas image that I couldn’t resist:
- Stamps: Oh What Fun
- Color Palette: Real Red, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Shimmer White, Silver and Gold
- Accessories: Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits, Big Shot, Precision Base Plate (you need this!!), Stampin’ Dimensionals, Linen thread, Jingle Bells, Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder, Silver Foil sheets, Gold Foil sheets
I love the Shimmery White card stock on this card. It’s very clean with a lot of texture from the foil and the Glitter Embossing Powder, and the shimmer makes me think of snow. (Yes, I know about snow. I have been to the University of Notre Dame in February, aka the Frozen Tundra. Thank goodness for Mary Travis and her boots.)
This is a 5″ x 5″ square card, but an envelope is quick and easy with the Envelope Punch Board.
I had a small environmental disaster making this card. You may know that certain persons in my household consider glitter to be of the Dark One. Tonight I was working with the Real Red Glitter EP and I moved the embossing tray just a little too quickly. Clouds of red glitter were IMMEDIATELY dispersed into the stamp room atmosphere. The EPA may have to be summoned. I finally took everything outside to try to get the EP back into the little jar (sort of like returning the genie to the lamp) and now my back lanai is infected. Fortunately, Mr. Maui Stamper is on a business trip until Friday afternoon.
If you’ll excuse me, I have work to do. If you want to create your own environmental disaster, shop HERE.
