Merry Monday #266 - Santa

Hello and happy Monday friends.  It is time for a new Merry Monday Challenge and this week Sue wants us to use a Santa on our Christmas card.  I hope you are busy getting your Christmas cards done.  It is only five weeks until Christmas.

I used this cute Santa, tree and sentiment from MFT Jingle All the Way.  I colored them with Copics and Promarkers and cut them out with the matching dies.  I punched out some ornaments from red, gold, and silver glitter paper, and then added Wink of Stella to the star to make it glittery also.  I mounted them on DSP embossed with SU Stripes EF.  I added a piece of different woodgain paper across the bottom and colored the shadow in, but got it a little darker than what I wanted.. The red check paper is from American Crafts Crimson 6x6 pad.  I added black mats and punched the scallop border with a retired SU border punch.  The image panel and the sentiment are both mounted with foam tape.

I hope you will check out all the great inspiration by my teammates over at Merry Monday and join us in this fun challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
