Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone,

Well, today is the 1st Tuesday of the month and that means it's my turn to post at Craft-Dee BowZ. This month's theme is Christmas/Holidays.

Here is the card I made for this month's theme.

My Santa stamp is so old but my most favorite Santa stamp ever. I added stickers for the ornaments, the sentiment and the pine bough. For the background panel I used a sheet of paper that depicts images of Santa. Those images are about the size of a postage stamp. I used vellum to tone that paper down since I wanted my stamped Santa to be the focal point.

I glittered the ornaments and colored the pine bough with an alcohol marker.

The bow is a multi loop green sheer organza ribbon. I love working with that type of ribbon. It makes the best bows.

Here is a closer view of the bow.

Reminder - Please set aside a few minutes to join us in out blog hop. The hop starts tomorrow nite at 10:00 p.m. ET and ends Saturday at noon.

Hope to see you at the hop.

That is a fabulous Santa stamp. Maybe I can find one on ebay. Your card is vintagey gorgeous and Santa is definitely the focal point. But I wish you hadn't put the countdown of the shopping days I have left until Christmas. Now I am sad. :) Thanks for joining us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
