Here Comes Santa Claus - A Little Late - Ho Ho Ho

I know it's a little late, but it was a late Christmas card for my daughter and I had to wait til she got it before posting it.
My daughter owns a blue VW bus and I saw this die in one of my craft magazines and had to have it.  
It is by Marianne Design  and I got it at 123Stitch and I used my Cuttlebug to cut and emboss it.
And Santa in his sleigh is part of an image from
The border at bottom I made using my Cricut Explore and the Plantin School Book cartridge.

The sky was colored using "Chipped Sapphire" Distress Ink, and the moon was colored with "Antique Linen" Distress Ink.   The "Tis the Season" is from "Christmas Greetings" Dazzles that I got from Paper Wishes .  All the sparkle on the bus for the "metal" trim, and the buildings. and Santa's sleigh, is Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen.  The headlights are covered with Liquid Glass from CTMH 

I used acetate for the windows and last but not least....
that cute little reindeer driving the VW is Peeking Reindeer from Great Impressions Stamps ....he is just the cutest little thing!!!

My daughter LOVES this card and I know she will treasure it.  It was so fun to make.
