Christmas Card Challenges - Santa's Hats

Good Sunday Morning my friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and this week we have an Inspiration Photo (Santa's Hats) to challenge you.

I used this vintage Santa image from a discontinued MFT's set.  I stamped him on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Copics.  I cut him out with MFT Pierced Circle dies and sponged light ink around the image before removing the die.  I matted him with MFT Electric Red CS cut with MFT Circle 2 die.  I used the same red for the large mat and the Spellbinders Grommet Tag die.  I stamped the sentiment from Inspired By Stamping Festive Frames.  I added gold twine to the tag and mounted it with foam tape.  The Santa image is also mounted with foam tape.  The DSP is from Graphic 45 Twas the Night Before Christmas and the card base is MFT Natural CS.  I added 2 MME green enamel dots in the top two corners.

I hope you will check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates over at Christmas Card Challenges and play along with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
