Christmas Greetings

I made this card for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown sketch challenge and as the card and papers are from my snippets drawer I'm also popping into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk 
Stamps: Docrafts Me to You 'Santa' and Woodware 'Festive Verse'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Small and Classic Scalloped Ovals Small
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Versafine Olympia Green
Colouring: Promarkers
Snippets: Red mirri card, white silk card and green holly paper 

I layered a strip of green holly paper onto red mirri card and attached it to the card front.  The image was stamped onto white card, die-cut and embossed.   This was coloured with Promarkers and I used fun flock on the edges of the coat and hat.  The image was attached to a scalloped die-cut of red mirri card before being attached to the card front with foam tape.  I fussy cut holly leaves and attached them to the bottom of the image.   To finish, I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card.

Hi Kath,
oh this is very lovely, and beautifully designed too.
Love the flocking on his outfit, and the wonderful red mirri backing.
Fab paper used too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Lovely card, the fun flock makes a great trimming for the santa outfit. I love the holly paper you used and the red mirri card adds a nice festive look.

Wow Kath, this is adorable. Such a beautiful image and the flocking is wonderful as a finishing touch. Please don't tell me you truly left stamping your sentiment right until the very end? Even with a stamp positioner - with my wobbly hands I've learned the hard way :(
