My plan at the end of the year was to create 4-5 Christmas cards per month so that I wasn’t scrambling around the holidays. Well nothing happened in January. But thanks to Linda over in the Hero Arts Flickr group I have made two this month. She often enters cards in the Merry Monday challenge. This particular one was about Santa and it just hit me that I needed to make a Santa card. I entered it in the Merry Monday Challenge which I never have done before. Thanks Linda you got me started.
The background is stamped with a greeting and the snowflakes from the following stamp sets:
3 Hero Arts sets – Christmas Reindeer (CL540), Swirl Christmas (CL469), Peace & Joy (CL880).The Ho Ho Ho is from a Stampin Up stamp set called Star Santa. The snowflakes and the Ho Ho Ho were stamped with Memories dye ink. The greeting is done with Color Box Frost White.
The santa is also from the Stampin Up set. He is stamped with Memories black ink and colored in with Copics. The belt buckle is colored in with gold Wink of Stella.
I created another one just like this but I added Distress Glitter (Clear Rock Candy) to the hat and cuffs. The belt buckle in version two is silver.
Entered in the Merry Monday Challenge 190.
