Santa with Presents

Another upcycled card was this lovely picture of Santa with a bag of presents.  I made this card for both the Christmas Cards All Year Round September Challenge which is 'Christmas Presents' and for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown Theme Challenge for 'Gifts of the Season'.


I cut the image into a square and attached it to red mirri card.   This was layered onto Hot off the Press dark red vintage paper and red mirri, before being attached to the front of the card.  The snow on the roof was already glittered, but I added Diamond Stickles to the snow flakes and coloured the stars with a Sakura gold metallic gel pen.  To finish, I applied white Fun Flock to Santa's hat and coat.
