Season of Cheer -Slimline Card

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
I hope everyone had a joyful and peaceful Christmas.

I am working on gifts for my Rheumatologist and a few other medical service providers who do a wonderful job of caring for my special needs!  They are the best!

I used my "Country Sleigh" stamp because it has become one of my favorites!
Season of Cheer
The card is oversized, but I plan to place it in the gift bag, so it won't make much difference if the envelope doesn't close completely.  I am not good with slimline cards; too much real estate,  but I like this image so much I wanted to use it on a landscape card. 

I reviewed a very nice pack of super smooth alcohol marker paper for Amazon.  I really like it.  I have shied away from purchasing the more expensive popular brands because I found them to be too much of an investment for everyday craft projects.  Since this was a promotional item and free to me, I gave it a try!  I am hooked.  It is not as expensive, and the results are amazing.

The package comes with 60 sheets, and since I will only use it for toppers and not as a base for my cards, this box should last a long time.  The paper accepts ink beautifully and has a satiny finish.
I blurred out the background to show the stickles on my sleigh and the bridle.    I thought that fairies lighting the path would be far more interesting than trees and mountains off in the distance!

In real life, the red mirror paper adds a touch of grace and eloquence to the card.  As usual, my photography is seriously lacking.
