Merry Monday Santa

This card was made with a pre-coloured Santa image from a Lili of the Valley Art Pad and lots of snippets so I'm entering the Merry Monday 'Santa' challenge as well as popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk tent fold
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Ho Ho Ho!' Art Pad
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Swirl Frame'
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Blue and white card, peel-off stars

I embossed a snippet of white card with the Swirls Frame', trimmed it slightly and cut out the centre before attaching it on top of my Santa image.  This was then layered onto blue card and attached to the card front.  I found oddments of peel-off stars and attached them around the frame.  To finish, I tickled the image with a Wink of Stella.

A very cute card Kath. I like his funny little helpers. The embossing folder works really well. I've got this one and wouldn't have thought of using it for Christmas. Barbxx

Fabulous card Kath - and such a clever use of that lovely folder, which I also have. Would never think to actually cut out the frame as you did - mind you, if it involves sharp knives then I ain't gonna try either! I'll leave it to the experts :)

Great to see you in the Playground!

Hugs
