Jingle All The Way

Are you feeling the holiday spirit yet?  

Meet today's card.  
Just a fun little card that will hopefully brighten someones day.

To create my card, I embossed a piece of heavy white cardstock using an embossing folder from Tim Holtz.  I love the design it created and just a little tip....if you lightly spray you paper with water before embossing, you will get a much crisper impression on your paper.
Next, I printed out the Santa and sprayed with Krylon to seal the ink and avoid bleeding.
(I first bought him when he was offered as a digi.  He is no longer available but you can buy him in a set from MFT.)   
Using Copic markers, I coloured him in and glued a cute little sparkle pom-pom to his hat.  
I die-cut the sentiment using a die from Stamplorations and also coloured that using Copics giving it an ombre look.
I glued that over my embossed background and pop-dotted Santa on top of the sentiment.

 Adding my card to these challenges:

Little Red Wagon- IT'S EMBOSSABLE

Crafty Cardmakers- EMBOSSING

Cutie Pie Challenge- CUTIE-NESS


 Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
 Supplies:  stamp- none/ die- Stamplorations/ Cuttlebug/ Copic markers/ pop dots/ pom-pom/ eb folder-TH/ Krylon spray

I've been tempted to get that Santa set for some time, Karen. The thing about a digi is you can resize it, can't you? Love the ombre coloring and embossing.
