Hi Lovely Friends...
Yep... I admit.... I have a weakness for a lovely little Santa... and this one drawn by Birdie Brown is no exception! Now I bought this image as a digi from Birdie Brown last year (and used it a lot!).... but I now see that's not available in digi form any more. BUT... the good news is that MFT are selling a set of clear stamps - designed by Birdie - including the three Santa's that I love! It's called Jingle All The Way.
This isn't a DT card - it's just because I needed to make something that didn't have to use a particular make of image or theme... I think we all have to do that every now and again don't we?
Soooo here's what I did: The sky was created with DI colours blended together... then I used a Uni Posca Marker for the falling snow. I used a Paper Smooches Stitched Borders die for the hills... then framed it all with a Lil' Inkers Stitched Square - with a square aperture cut out. The trees are from a Mariannes Creatables die and are liberally splattered with stickles... and lastly... the word Christmas IS NOT a peel-off just in case you were wondering! It's a word die from Memory Box - soooooo difficult to adhere to the card - I ended up using a double sided sheet stuck to the back of the gold mirri card.. did the diecutting, then had to try and get one to part from the other! Hmmmm NOT so easy! It stuck everywhere I didn't want it to stick, until I tried to put it where it should be on the card, when it decided IT DIDN'T want to stick at all! It wasn't really the size I wanted it to be either... but hey... it was all I had so it had to do.
Ain't he just the cutest??
