Santa's Here!!

As the big day quickly approaches, I find I can't stop making more cards for Christmas.  I guess that is a good thing as I need some more for giving and sending.

Today's card is a super simple one inspired by this cute little Santa from Birdie Brown.  It is a digi that I got last year when she was selling on Etsy.  It is no longer available as she is designing for MFT and they now have a set with this Santa in it.  Check it out...super cute!
So, Santa was printed, coloured with Copics and cut out.  I mounted him onto some Christmas paper with the cutest font that I have hoarded in my stash for years.  I then did some random embossing on white cardstock, stamped the sentiment from Kaiser and added it over the Santa with pop dots. The finishing touch was to add a sparkly pom-pom to the top of his hat.

Adding my card to these challenges:

CASology- OLD 
(this dp is super old and been in my stash for years)


Crafts Galore Encore- ANYTHING GOES

Through the Purple Haze- ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Kaiser, Digi/ Copic markers/ bl Memento ink/ pop dots/ rubber mallet/ eb folder/ pom-pom

So sweet! The sparkly pom pom is a great addition. I have a similar Santa (or I will if my order ever gets here) and you bet I'm going to make something like this.
