I will admit that I almost didn’t get this one done for today. I spent all day Monday taking care of the post-holiday travel stuff at home and then had to leave on a trip late yesterday. I played around with some ideas but this is what finally seemed to work best. I colored this little Santa from Color Me Christmas (SU ret) using Copics and then fussy cut him out. I used a stitched circle as the base for him and the sentiments. I thought this was the perfect sketch for pulling out words dies so I used Christmas Greetings thinlits for this “jolly”. I thought it was a perfect choice for using with Santa. The “Christmas” sentiment is from the Poinsettia stamp set and fit perfectly with the die. In fairness, I may have cheated a bit on the sketch but I’m saying that the stamped word is kind of like the rectangle on the sketch and I’m sticking to that story! *smile* The card base is from an old kit and I’m happy to be using them up this year.
I hope you enjoy this card and the sketch this week. The team has done beautiful work and you will love all the inspiration. Don’t forget to check out my first post for The Card Concept. It is a fabulous inspiration piece that is sure to make you want to run to your stamp room! Thanks for stopping in. See you soon!
