Little Santa

Good evening, crafty blogger's.
I'm here to share another Christmas card.
I made a promise to make one every month to make sure I have enough to go around.
Christmas is my favourite theme and holiday season.

I used Little Santa from The waiting For Christmas 2014 Collection.
The image is stamped with Memento rich cocoa ink onto neenah cardstock and cut out using a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

For my shaped card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #2 and Maja Design A Gift For You papers.
Other dies used are Marianne Design Anjas vintage decoration, Ivy circle and Christmas tree.
Sizzix on the edge snow flurries. Cheery Lynn snowflake 5 and french pastry doily. Joy Crafts Billes flourishes and banner. Di-Namites merry sleigh.
I inked all the die cuts with Tim Holtz frayed burlock distress ink and coated the snow flurries with Snow - Tex.
The pretty lace is from Live & Love Crafts.
The sentiment is Joy Crafts English banner text.

I have coated the Christmas tree with Twinklets diamond dust.
I coloured the presents on the sleigh and coated them with ArtDeco glamour dust.
The sleigh is coated with Snow - Tex.
The bark star and bell are from Live & Love Crafts. I coated them with Snow - Tex too.
I used a selection of flowers, berries, and a pine cone from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live & Love Crafts and The Ribbon Girl. They too have had a coating of Snow - Tex.

Here is a closer look at the merry sleigh.

Here is Little Santa! I love him!
I added glamour dust to Santa's hat trim and cuffs. His buttons are embellished with glossy accents.
The gold jingle bell is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I dotted Santa's cheeks with a Inkssential opaque white pen and added a few white liquid pearls around the image.

Inside the card is decorated with design paper and a Joy Crafts Noor Design oval.

I hope you like my 2nd Christmas card of 2015?

I am entering my card into the following super challenges;
