Santa Claus is coming...

Hi All,

So, I had a chance today to finish colouring Santa (it took me quite a long time) and put him onto a card. The Santa image and the chimney are both from Magnolia . I coloured them with my Copic markers...I used a lot of different colours, so I'm not even going to try to list them.

The colours of CS and papers I used are actually retired SU In Colours from 2 years ago! I mainly used Cranberry Crisp and True Thyme, and the DSP that was out then...I forget the name of it. And I used the Cranberry and Thyme Stitched ribbons (still trying to use them up!).

The Naughty or Nice sentiment is part rub-ons, part hand writing. The rub-ons are from Close To My Heart (thanks Sharon!), and I wrote the rest with my black SU marker.

The icicles are also covered in Crystal Effects for a raised, slippery feel.

I mounted Santa on foam circles, as well as raising up most of the other layers, too.

Lately, I have been decorating the inside of the card...I just feel like it adds a great deal more interest to it, and it's a nice finish.

I hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi All,

So, I made a card recently that was VERY simple. I used Kraft CS from SU, DSP from DCWV (The Winter Mat Pack), my Long Rectangle Nestabilities, White Organdy Ribbon from SU (retired), and Holly Alphabet Stickers from Martha Stewart.

And Wham! The card is put together. I think it has a nice simplicity to it. Not too much goin' on...

The green DSP has some nice Xmas words on it and some glitter, but those are hard to see in the pictures.

Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by!
