Magical Crafts Forum Christmas Challenge #1

This is my Christmas card for the very first Christmas challenge over on my blogging buddy Angel's new craft forum Magical Crafts. The theme was 'Magical Christmas'. When I saw this gingerbread house and santa it reminded me of our visit to Munich some years ago, and there they really gave Christmas a magical feel. The images are free downloads from the D.A.I.S.I.E. Company I enlarged the gingerbread house on PSP placing it on the right side of a landscape set up and printed on to card, then folded along the left side of the house then cut out to make the shaped base card. Coloured the house with copics and promarkers then used glamour dust on the snow. Printed out a smaller gingerbread santa and again coloured with copics and added a touch of glamour dust to his trims. Stuck santa to left side of card with a foam pad. Something a bit different from me for a change and really enjoyed doing it.
Hope you have all had a great day, thanks for stopping by!!
