Enough, enough, on to my card. Still having my love affair with Better Not Pout Santa from Sassy Cheryl's. He is a fast one to color and quite versatile because of his size and shape. I was going for the Vintage Look so I chose to color with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I cut Santa out and popped him up with some foam tape. He is resting on Reminisce lace a paper doily and some more luscious paper from Bo Bunny's Father Christmas collection. A little Frosted Lace Stickles gives Santa a bit of holiday bling. I added a bit of Diamond Stickles on the DP and hot glued a K & Company key to unlock the Christmas Surprise. SU Crumb Cake card stock was used for the card base.
Hope you enjoyed my card today. If anyone has a suggestion on the best paper to use with the distress inks and SU blender pen, please leave me a comment. TTFN, Hugs, Linda
