I made a promise to myself that I would make a Christmas card every week. Well, that hasn't happened lately. But, this week with so much rain, I have more time to play in my craft room. I thought the sketch was so much fun at
Tis The Season so I looked through my Christmas stash and decided to make a card!
The "North Pole" clear stamp set by Avery Elle is one of my favorite Christmas stamps. I am a huge Santa fan. I like this set because it has 3 different hats for Santa to wear. I love the Ho, Ho, Ho one, but believe it or not, I lost it at Christmas time when I was making cards. I was so sad! I dug through the garbage looking for it and turned my craft room upside down. It was just gone. --- I gave up and figured I would have to buy another set to replace that hat stamp. Well, the other day, I pulled out a few items that I never use and there was the hat die stuck to the back of a package. YIPPEE! I was so excited! Don't you just love it when something like that happens? It really is the little things! LOL!
After stamping my Santa, I colored him with Copic Markers and added some Wink of Stella for shine. I used Marvy Snow Marker on his fur to give it some dimension. I just think it is amazing how they created that fantastic embellishment. I found the yellow and black star papers in my stash of papers. I am not sure where they came from. Sorry! This was a very easy card to make, but I think it shouts out Merry Christmas even if the colors are non-traditional!
I lined an envelope with the matching papers. I think it adds a fantastic finish to any card.
So thankful you stopped by my blog today. Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. It means so much to me to hear from you!
Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY!
