Well the challenge bug has begun! Here is another card that I've done for the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland Christmas blog challenge;
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long CSAYL65 challenge;
A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge 122 Anything Goes; and
I just love this Santa College from Rubber Stampede, don't you? My card stops at the dots on the side of the My Mind's Eye dp; the brown is just the background the card was propped up on.
DP for both the red background and the green Labels 4 nestie are from last year's MME Christmas pack. Santa was stamped in Versafine Sepia Brown on SU Vanilla and cut with a smaller Labels 4 nestie, then shaded with three different distress inks. The "25" was cut out from the MME dp. It's very glittery IRL. It was backed with burgundy cs and popped up along with the Santa for dimension. My friend, Lana, gave me the "believe" metal tag from her stash, and the MS punch and green cs for the branches. The dp was sponged around the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.
Thanks so much for looking! Have a great rest of the week!
