My list of Christmas cards to make is slowly getting smaller thanks to all the challenges I have been entering lately. Today's make is another one off the list, a quick little card using a stamp I had forgotten I have. I found it in the bottom of a basket of stamps and thought it was about time it saw some ink again. I started by using black ink but it looked to severe so I used brown instead and I am much happier with the result. I then used watercolours to very lightly colour Santa's face and the holly on his hat. Lastly I just added lots of Stickles glitter to his hat and beard.
I like this paper I found in my paper rack, it's by MME. Finished off with some bakers twine from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and a little bell (my favourite Christmas embellishment). A really quick card!
I made this card for the following challenges;
Simon Says Stamp challenge - Use a Song for inspiration - 'Santa Baby'
Moving Along with the Times - Sparkle
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Crafty Boots Challenge - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
