2011 Christmas Cards Teaser 4

It's almost time to begin the ten day countdown to Christmas. Hope you are ready!!! Could not resist one more teaser before the final reveal. I am sure you will be able to put two and two together to come up with the finished project. So, here goes. This is the stamp set that I used to create santa, his sleigh, and his reindeer. I stamped him over the moon into the darkened sky. 
I added some snow dots and some of the Martha Stewart chunky glitter for a snowy effect to the base of the house.
These are my completed paper pieced friends. They are from the Joys of the Season's Cart--the Carolers and the Girl with Presents. Again, paper piecing is not my thing, but I think they turned out pretty well. What do you think?
This will be the outside of card. I decided to use as little ornamentation as possible. 


Now, just trying to decide on what to put on the cover and how to close the card. Have a couple of options up my sleeve.

Someone asked about left over scraps that I have. As you can see, I maximize all of my paper to the fullest. If it means altering the design a bit, that is what I do so that I don't end up with a lot of scraps. 

Come back in a day or so and I should have the finished card posted. Thanks for stopping by and always remember to get inky in the Name of Love.
Until then.
