Hello there! Just wanted to share a card I made to add to my Christmas stash. I used a stamp I illustrated for Whimsy Stamps called, Santa's Midnight Snack. The gorgeous dark green background paper was designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs and can be found HERE in the "Very Merry" pack. Ann and I partnered together to design the papers and had a lot of fun. We plan on doing more in the near future.

I coloured Santa with the following Copics:
Santa hat, red striped pjs: R35, 37, 89
White stripes: E50
Candy canes: R35 and Copic White. Plus I added red stickles on the red parts.
Bunny Slippers: R43, 37, B41, 60 and blender pen to remove colour to make the "fuzzy" look
Cookies: E31, 33, 13, 17
Santa's skin: E00 11, R20. 21
Santa's beard and hair and white hat trim:
E50, W1, 3, 4
Apron: C0, 2 plus blender
Background: G40, W00, 1, 3, 4, 5
I used clear Stickles on the pom and while it was still wet, I sprinkled Prisma Glitter on as well for extra glam.
I spritzed the whole thing with Smooch spray and tried to pick that up with the angle shot, but the sparkle does not show. :-( In real life, it really glitters all over!
I made the poinsettia flower with a die - can't remember the brand now... lots of dies and a punch used... any questions, just shoot me an e-mail (my addy is on the watermark).
Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the U.S.!
