DT Make it Crafty - Ho Ho Ho!

Hi eveyrone!! It's my turn to share some inspiration over on the Make it Crafty blog and today I have another Christmas card for you. These Make it Crafty Santas are among my favourite ever and, this year, there will be a lot of people receiving cards featuring them ;) 


I made an A6 card (105mm x 148mm) with a wine red cardstock base and papers from Authentique. All of my papers have been machine stitched onto white cardstock and adhered to the card base with DS tape. 

 I used copic markers to colour him up, then I trimmed him out and adhered him to the papers with 3D foam dots.


Copics:
Skin: E000, E00. E11, R20
Suit/Hat: E24, E43, E46. W1, W3
Belt: Y01, Y13, Y17. C5, C7, C9
Boots: C3 through C9


I used one of the new chipboard snowflakes and heat embossed it with Sparkling Snow embossing powder from WOW! (camera is being very uncooperative of late, so I can't catch the glimmer)


I finished off with two sentiments from Waltzingmouse Stamps and a little ticket from My Mind's Eye Holly 
Jolly Die Cuts.


Challenges:
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes 
Stamping Sensations - Traditional Christmas
