Magnolia ‘Santa on Christmas Eve’

Hi everyone, hope you’ve all had a good week so far. I’ve managed to do two challenges with this card, Everybody Art Challenge where the theme is Christmas and My time to craft where the challenge is ‘Very Vintage’. I’ve used the gorgeous Magnolia ‘Santa on Christmas Eve’ and the ‘Fir Twig’ background stamps and the card just kept getting bigger and bigger so it’s a huge card cut from a pre-folded A4 card blank, so I think this will go to one of the family, I like to give them big cards.


I stamped then masked Santa and then stamped the background in and watercoloured with distress inks. There’s some gold metallic pen on the belt buckle, lantern and boots and also some glaze on the bet and boots but the camera hasn’t picked that up. I made a frame from some Doodlebug embossed velvet paper and placed that over the top of the image with dimension tape. The snowflake is cut with a cuttlebug die and then glittered with chunky glitter. I stamped the Penny Black sentiment stamp in red ink and then cut out with a Nestabilities labels die. Everything else quite straightforward really, snowflake punched white bazzil, red bazzil layer, faux stitching, stickles, sponging and a big bow.


I’m still playing catch up, but not actually catching up at all, I think everyone is the same at the moment, not enough hours in the days. Still on a mission to get Christmas cards done and not getting very far with that either :D. See you tomorrow with my Craft Barn post. TFL.
