Santa Stache

CCMC327This Santa is just THE CUTEST and I couldn’t resist using him for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge this week (a fun SKETCH challenge!).  I used him for a project I made for the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Collection 2014 and had an extra ‘sitting on top of my desk’ so I just HAD to put him to good use!

This is really a very simple card and you really can’t see the ‘sparkle’ I added to the beard/mustache/hat on Santa, the Candy Dots and the embossed snowflakes on the Lost Lagoon panel.

Here’s the Details –

  • Cherry Cobbler – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Snowflake print – Trim the Tree dsp – 4 x 5 1/4, lay at an angle on the Cherry Cobbler base and trim
  • Lost Lagoon – 1 x 4 1/4, run through Lucky Stars Embossing Folder and add to card front
  • Stamp Santa on Whisper White using Memento Black ink, color hat with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities and face with Skin Tone Blendabilities, cut out and add to card front using dimesionals.
  • Stamp mustache a second time, cut out and add using dimensionals
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black on Kraft – 1/2 x 2 1/4, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add Pool Party Candy Dots to top
  • Add Dazzling Details to the candy dots, Santa, and embossed stars to finish off.
