Dasher II Christmas Card

Hi Everyone,
As promised, I am posting more of my Christmas cards. I made about 10 or twelve of this design. It is a fairly large card - 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches. This is similar to a larger card I made this summer. I re-sized it to make it more mailing friendly. It is still a little bumpy, but I think it will get through the sorting machine (at the Post Office) okay. I changed out the ribbon on the second card.

I used the Dasher stamp and an older Tis the Season stamp from Stampin' Up. The cs is Sage Shadow (SU). The DP is all from K & Company. I stamped Dasher and die cut him. Then painted a coat of Shimmer paint over the whole image. I punched the scallops from DP and added a Snowflake ribbon.

That snowflake stamp is from Inkadinkado.

And here is the card with a red ribbon. Everything else is the same.

And the inside:
