Second post of the day - a challenge entry

Afternoon readers,
 
How's it with you? It's really DULL and grey here and rain looks imminent - but it's looked like that for hours!!! Apparently, the rain woke my hubby during the night AND kept him awake for over half an hour - not me!! I slept through it all - ooops!
 
Anyhoo, on with the reason for my second post of the day - the challenge over on the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog this week is: SANTA ...... well, I DO love a Christmas card so ...
 
 
 
Materials used:
  • White, scallop edged 300 gsm C6 card and matching sized envelope
  • Deep red and striped paper panels from the DCWV winter stack
  • Inkadinkado Santa image stamped on to white card using Versafine onyx black ink and cut out, leaving a generous border
  • Alcohol markers to give the Santa definition and a hint of colour
  • Crystal stickles to highlight the hair
  • Glossy accents for the eye glasses
  • White grosgrain ribbon
  • White card panel cut slightly larger than the image panel and coloured using a red copic and then an Inkylicious checkerboard image stamped using versamark ink and permanent red pan pastel applied over the top - this gives just a subtle check image and does NOT show in the photo - sorry!
  • Black card panel for matting
  • Two faux metal snowflakes attached to the finished card using Glossy Accents - boy, I WISH they dried quicker!
 
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday

Well done for getting another 'C' card done, I still can't get in the mood for that, especially as the weather hasn't warmed up here from the winter yet.

This is a fab Santa card- what a great image, and love the way you've 'spruced' him up a bit! The DP is a perfect choice. Thanks for playing along with us at 52 CCT
