- As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys and St Nicholas too.
For the card design itself I looked to the zig-zag fold, which I unnecessarily cut on my Cricut. At first I wasn't sure how I'd color such a detailed image, so I decided to use chalks to give it a "vintage" feeling, whatever that means. I've been pretty confident about working with snow on images ever since I found Polar White FlowerSoft. Oooh it's so pretty. For that "something extra" I pulled out my snowflake punch and made good use of some silver and gold scrap paper.
