Hi everyone and welcome to the 2nd June Challenge for the Holly and the Ivy! As always, this is an anything goes theme - so we hope you will join in the fun and get your Christmas card stash moving!
I've had a fun Birthday weekend/Father's Day celebration. All the kids came over and Daddy and I didn't have to cook once! I took time out this afternoon to make this happy little card! Santa's out in the woods picking out his own Christmas Tree!
I was thinking a plaid background to go with the trees and so found this Sizzix embossing folder and ran a piece of white through the embossing machine. I then took the SU real red ink pad and ran it over the embossed piece to achieve my background.
I found an already made Santa in the Tonic Santa Claus Trio die set, he had already been colored with Copics. I just put little snippets of cardstock behind the spaces, black belt, silver buckle and red for his lips.
The sentiment from the same SU stamp set was stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne and then heat embossed with Clear Detail. This was then cut out with the long Lawn Fawn die, though I cut it smaller by putting in back in the die, moving the sentiment over and running it back through the machine.
