I made one more card of that pretty horse drawn sleigh image. This one is for my Great Grandma. She is 87 years old so maybe she rode in a horse drawn sleigh once upon a time. And she lived happily ever after 'cuz she had a horse farm and raised horses. Lots of horses!
I know she will like this card because a horse card would be her second choice after a Baby Jesus card. I hope I get a Baby Jesus stamp in my stocking for Christmas...I asked Santa for card making supplies.
Two boys in my class don't believe in Santa. I told my little brother and we decided that he is real. He always brings us presents so he must be real. I do think maybe is he doesn't have real bones so that he can fit down the chimneys. When he fits down there, I hope he has some new stamps for me and some new copic pens. Sometimes I don't have enough colours and then I have to wait to finish my image till Grandma comes over with hers.
Here is my card. I did not have to colour this one at all, just chalk the edges. I used something new in this card. My Grandma calls it a border strip. It looks like wax paper but feels like glass. It is the shimmery strip of handwriting under my red ribbon. Do you know how to read handwriting yet? I am not sure what it says because I am still learning to sound out words that are printed. I can read now if the words aren't too hard...if they are I try to sound them out. Some words are really hard though.
I think when you are really old you get to learn handwriting cuz my Mum knows how.
Here is the card for my Great Grandma. I put lots of bling on it so she could see it.l.
My Grandma helped me stamp the inside. The images don't matter if they are crooked cuz you just make sure the die cut is on straight and then it is OK. But the inside of the card is scary...it is so hard to get it straight. She put it where it should go and I pressed it down.
