Long Tall Santa

Hi Bloggers.

I have a Christmas card for you today made up from leftover demo bits -

For the background, I used a square piece of Coconut White Card cut using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares. I popped a little Tarnished Gold CS Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked it up onto a Natural Sponge and dabbed it all over my background. I repeated the process with Silver CS Shimmer Paint. Next, I popped some Victorian Red CS Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and dabbed it through the Pine Needles Mask. I also edges the card with the Victorian Red Paint. I matted onto Black Card and then anouther piece of Coconut White.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Long Tall Santa Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and embossed using CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Double Pierced Squares and added it to my card using CE Mounting Cushion.

I stamped my stanta from the Long Tall Santa Die Set onto Coconut White Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and embossed using CS Matt Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Victorian Red Shimmer Paint, Opaque White and Black Sakura Glaze Pens, Tattered Rose Distress Marker and Diamond Snow Glitter Jewels. I added Santa to my card using CE Mounting Cushion.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Great Card. This would be appropriate for so many people. I'm sure the photo's don't do it justice as I can imagine the background looks so much better. Thanks for sharing.
