An Old Fashioned Christmas

We all have a special Christmas memory from our childhood.  Mine was the year Santa brought me the rocking horse I had wanted...I was 4 years old.  That is what inspired this card.  I used the Rocking Horse image from Sunsational Stamps 

In order for you to see the areas I added Liquid Glass to I had to tilt it so the light would hit it....I wanted to make sure you saw it :)

I thought that a rocking horse should be on a rocking card.  To make the rocking card base I used the largest die (4 1/4") from the Sizzix Scallop Circles.   I had a piece of old fashioned looking patterned cardstock that had presents on it, but of course you can use whatever cardstocks you like.  I scored the circle at 2 1/8" (the center) and folded it in half.  There you have the base of the card.  I used Liquid Glass (a Close To My Heart product) on the presents to make them stand out.  Then I added some gold "garland" to the top.  Now for the Rocking Horse ....I colored it with Distress Markers, added a gold brad on the reigns and also used Liquid Glass on the reigns.  I tied a red ribbon and added that to a tag I had "distressed" with Distress Ink and stamped Merry Christmas and attached it to the rocking horse.  And lastly, I used foam tape to attach the rocking horse to the rocking card.  It's really fun because the card makes the rocking horse rock!.
