Rocking Horse Christmas Card

This is another card I'm going to use as a 1st Christmas card. When people ask for cards that are for the same recipient I need to think of cards that are completely different. 

This is a basic card. Simply matt and layers with embossed card, I have used a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have die cut the rocking horse and presents using Tattered Lace dies. I have then cut scalloped circles using Xcut dies from a nesting set, The white circle will include a personalised sentiment when I have been told the requirements. I have completed the card with flat backed gems.
