Santa Claus is coming to town...

When it comes to me making a card, I must admit there are some things that I always like to include. For me, texture is very important, I like to add finishing touches of ribbon, fibres, glitter or jewels, which can sometimes turn a simple design into something that little bit more special. The card always, has to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and I always believe in "less is more". I like simplicity and I never want to drown the card in design. And then there is one more thing that probably stands out and that is ~ that I love dimension. I think it makes the final card much more interesting and gives it some reality, almost as if you could lose yourself in the card.

So in my opinion, this card, ticks all those boxes. The glitter adds the texture and then you can't get more dimension on a card than creating a 3D Christmas rooftop scene. Each layer of the snowy, sparkling roofs, have been built up individually with 3D foam, with the main focus on Santa, standing at the highest point, with his sack of presents against a glittery, silver moon.
