Buckle Me Up a Santa Claus




Time for another card, again! This one is for Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas at Catch The Bug. The challenge is to take inspiration from the posted photo. I used the colors and the pine from the photo.

I made this card for my cousin - She loves bling.

My card uses the Sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I love love love this sketch! My image is from Bugaboo Stamps and colored with Promarkers. I mounted this cute santa on a scalloped circle with foam mounting tape. He's had glitter and sparkle added to his beard and the tree, with a clearstar gelly roll pen. The mix of papers make this a fun card. I used a silver ribbon slider, a fun green and silver metal brad and some sparkly gemstones to embellish the card. The ribbon is from my stash.
