SILVER SANTA

The challenge this week at Merry Monday is "santa".  Since I only own one santa stamp - what to do to make him front and center???  Decided on a silver theme and I really am pleased with how he turned out.



Santa was stamped in silver embossing powder as was the sentiment.  I added WOS to his beard, hair and fur on cap - sorry couldn't get it in the photo as it really adds a lot.  Put two circle dies together for the rim and the background was embossed and little clear sequins added.  Card base is Neenah metallic.  The santa and sentiment are from an old Jane Doodles set and the embossing folder is from Tim Holtz - neither available any longer.



















My card also will be entered in Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge - it's a tic-tac-toe and I chose the middle row.
Thanks for stopping by today and also for your kind comments.   Betty

  2. Hello Betty, I do like your card. Mine... Which isn't quite complete is most definitely to give to a child and whilst making it thought how I would not give a Father Christmas card to an adult, but yours is so grown up looking, it has a sophisticated look to it and most definitely stands out from the crowd... A lovely interpretation of the theme.
