Jolly Santa

Hello everyone! I got a few minutes to put this card together for this weeks Freshly Made Sketch #111.


Stamp is from Make it Crafty and colored with Copic's. I had already colored him and it was just sitting waiting to be made into a card. I used the layer behind him to simulate his belt on a larger dimension - really liked how it turned out!

When I first went to construct the belt, I pierced it to look like the holes in a belt but they weren't big enough. When I tried to make them bigger the cardstock kind of buckled the in middle (no pun intended) and I finally went with a white paint pen. Added the gold part at the right to look like part of his buckle.

Snowflake embossing folder is a 5x7 from Provo Craft. Santa and the snowflake back ground are both popped up using foam tape!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

What a fun Santa this is! Sorry you had so many issues with the belt. Sometimes those smaller pieces are a real pain to work with. Your end result, with the white pen is perfect! Great card, Laurie :)
