And Finally... Santa Collage

I finally found time to make the last of my Christmas cards and what a better way to finish than with old St Nicholas himself I think this has to be my favourite Christmas stamp of all (Santa Collage) the flourish and sentiment image are from a Papertrey ink stamp set (Silent Night)


Attention to detail...

I added heavy lace under the stamped image and on the base card I used a Stampin Up wheel with a holly stamp and heat embossed with gold detail powder.


On the image below you can see that I wrapped a gold thread around the right hand side of the card, the sizzix bigz floral die was glittered along with the punched out snowflake for extra texture.
