Santa Claus Is Coming To Town--The Challenge #54

December 7, 2015

It's Monday and time for a new challenge at: Always Playing With Paper -The Challenge!  This week we have an amazing sketch for you to work with!  So many possibilities!  We can't wait to see what you create! 

1. Use the challenge to create a card or paper project.
2. Please add the challenge photo to your post (copy and paste).
3. Have fun and comment on the submissions of others.
4. Anything that is offensive to myself or to my viewers will be removed.
5. Have fun.

I had so much fun making this card.  I love retro Santas and I just received this wonderful stamp set from  Artistic Outpost: Frosty and Friends.  It has several fun stamps in the set.  I stenciled the Crumb Cake layer with white embossing paste using the My Favorite Things -Snowfall Mixables stencil.  My base card is black and the other patterned papers are from a paper pack by American Crafts "Hot Cocoa".    The sentiment is stamped with Versa Mark ink using Avery Elle's  Joy To The World stamp set and cut out using the Joy To The World Die.  I added some Linen Thread and made a bow.  I colored in Santa's cheeks with a Copic Marker.  

Thank you very much for stopping by my blog today!  I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment!
