jolly happy Santa


I so love this jolly happy snowman from Sugar Nellie and as I was happy with the Santa tag I made a while ago I thought something similar on a card.

I coloured him with promarkers and added some sparkle with sakura glitter gel pens.

The base I decided would be all white as this would really make the image the central focus of the card. I used white copy paper which I embossed using a fiskars board .

I mounted Santa on silver mirri-board and then on a fancy spellbinders oval. I used the snowflake embossed paper on a shaped base and layered with more snowflake embossed paper and added some die cut swirls.

 I added a powder embossed sentiment from a set by LOTV and finished off with a couple of hand tied bows.

Not sure who I will be sending this to but I think they'll like it I know if I were to receive it I would.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Kaboodle doodle-inspired by a movie (The Santa Claus)
crafty catz challenges-Santa is coming to town
Sister Act-anything goes
crafty girls challenge-anything goes
ABC Christmas-out of the box no squares
