It's time for another challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round and we want to see Santa, an Elf or Fairy.  I've chosen Santa and have used a cute Lili of the Valley Art Pad image for my card.

I'm entering Sparkles Christmas Challenge 'Christmas is for Kids', Christmas with the Cuties 'For a Child', the Merry Little Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Something beginning with S' (I have obviously chosen Santa).

Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Winter Wonderland' Art Pad
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Labels One' and 'Decorative Labels One;
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Red embossed
Paper: Making Cards 'Contemporary Christmas' (magazine freebie)
Other: Wink of Stella

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto dark red card and attached it to the card front.  The image was precoloured, so I die cut and embossed it before layering it onto a die cut and embossed decorative label.  I then die cut three smaller labels and attached these to the back of the image (to give some dimension) before attaching it to the card front.  To finish I highlighted Santa, the snow and holly with a Wink of Stella.
