Holly Jolly Christmas

It's Team B's turn to challenge you at 613 Avenue Create. This week's challenge is Gift Packaging. Our sponsor for this week is Rick St. Dennis.

I chose to do a step card this week. I am using Night Before Christmas Santa. I opened the image with my Silhouette Cameo and did a print and cut. I colored Santa with Copic markers (suit - R35, R37, R39; belt & shoes - C5, C9; face - R01, R02, eyes - B01, holly - G28, fur trim and hair - C0, C2). The step card was cut using a cut file from Silhouette's online store. The designer paper is DCWV. I cut the tree using various colors of green designer paper and glitter paper and then assembled it. The ornaments and star were also cut using glitter paper. I attached the presents and then stamped the sentiment using cherry cobbler ink and a SU stamp and punch set.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafy Catz Challenge #209 - Santa Claus

  1. Hi Susan! Love that you used three different papers on the steps on this one! Adds to the energy and festiveness! Santa is perfectly balanced with the tree, package and sentiment on the "steps" - nicely done toots!

  2. Hi Susan! Such a great Christmas card! And the coloring of the Santa suit is so fabulous. I can see all the texture and his suit looks like it is velour and you can just touch the furriness! (I don't know if that's a word, but you colored his suit wonderfully). The whole card is just wonderful!

  3. This is perfect for our current challenge “Christmas Card” at Pattie’s Creations. What a cute image too! Thanks for joining us!
