Santa is coming!

Today's project is for three challenges.

The first is using the colours from the
ColourQ challenge #111

and the second is the sketch from the
CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC #29

and third, I will also be sending it to the St Luke's Charity challenge where the theme is Christmas

This is my card

I started by stamping Santa's sleigh and filled it with the presents on some white card, masked it with a Post It note and stamped the fir tree behind it. The presents were coloured with write markers, and the edges of the card sponged before layering it onto the maroon card.

The sentiment and snowflakes were then carefully inked with a Versamark pen and stamped below it ( positioned with the Stamp-a-ma-jig ) and heat embossed with white powder. It all was then placed on a white card.

Recipe :  Card = Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, and white card stock from my stash
Stamps = Lovely as a Tree, Loads of Love Accessories, Jolly Jingles Roller, and Clarity
Inks = Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Brown Pro marker ( I dont have Crumb Cake but this was the nearest I have ), and Versamark
Tools = Heat gun and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = White embossing powder

I hope you're all having a good weekend, and thanks for dropping by.
