Santa Card


I was in my craft room and made this one just because!!
I picked up the stamp at Michael's a few weeks ago...if you need to know who it is by let me know -I'm not going upstairs right now to find out :)

Here is what I did:
 I colored the image with prismacolor pencils adding a little blue into the hair to make it look really wintry.  There is white fun flock on the hat and glitter on the snowflakes.  I put some crystal glaze on the glasses and it looks amazing in person - I couldn't quite capture it with the camera.
There are 4 pixie pillows in blue on the corners and the silver ribbon is from Offray.
The blue paper is from Archivers and the metallic blue paper is a scrap from my basket.
The snow flakes are flat back embellishments from the Christmas department that I glued on and I doodled the white all along the card.

You are such a great doodler! That was the first thing I noticed on this beautiful card, probably because I'm too much of an accountant to doodle well.
