The new challenge for July at CAS Christmas is "Santa".  I have one Santa stamp and one die - so not too much of anything for starters!!

Decided to use this very old stamp from Jane Doodles and began by coloring him.  Didn't like it.  Tried various designs in black and white - didn't like those either.  Finally went with the gray/blue cs in a light and darker shade.  The snowflake embossing folder is from Sizzix and also very old.  After embossing I went over the raised parts with white ink.  The frame around Santa is some silver metallic and the sentiment is from the same set as the Santa stamp.  After assembling, I added clear sequins and done!

I am also entering my card at Die Cut Divas where the theme is "Christmas in July".


Thanks for stopping by.
