Cards in Envy Challenge: Santa is Coming to Town

It’s Monday and time for another Cards in Envy Challenge!  Woohoo, I’m really excited about this challenge because “Santa is Coming to Town”!  YEAH!  With Thanksgiving over and our bellies full, it’s time to breakout our Santa Claus stamps.  You can use any image that has to do with Santa as long as it’s fits into a A2 standard card.

For my inspiration I’ve chosen to use a stamp by Stampendous called “Jolly Santa”.  I colored him with my Kuretake Watercolors, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE as well as some distress inks.  The twinkle sentiment is from “Holiday Words” by Tim Holtz/Alterations, which has 17 wonderful messages in one die set.  I placed the sentiment on vellum and finished it with a bit of Wink of Stella.  I finished the card by splashing water over the background for texture.   Hope you like him!
