Santa


Can you tell I'm home alone except for the dog, and I'm playing!! I made this card for "Just Us Girls week #3 color challenge. I was to use Aqua, red and cream. Which I have done. I did stamp Santa on shrink paper, colored him in with stamping up markers, heated it then applied it. I also embossed the aqua which doesn't show up, it was just a square within the red square but still. I saw how to tie this bow today on Carolina's Creative Pad, so I just had to try. I'm rather please with it. The cream and aqua are stamping up card stock, the red is Gina K. I also added pearls to finish off my card. Hope you like it and thanks so much for taking time to look. I truly do appreciate all the comments also. Yall come back!!
