Santa Card

This is the best looking Santa I have made. Doesn't he look kinda "wintage"? This is a "shaped" card cut using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot)...........I love it these kind of cards. I also love all the textures on this card, too. This is another project from Santa's Visit SVG cut file from SVGcuts.com. Finished card size is 6" x 5". An envelope included in the cut file, too.

On most of the card, SU Close to Cocoa was used to sponge the edges. SU Sahara Sand is used for the beard and eyebrows. SU Pink Pirouette is used around the nose and is lightly dabbed for the cheeks. Use a black pen to make a dot for the eyes.

Gold thread is applied to the top of the lantern. To secure the thread, a drop of Crystal Lacquer will hold the knot.

Card inside: White mat is lightly sponged with SU Close to Cocoa ink

I hope you enjoyed this second project from this Santa's Visit Collection.
