Frosted Santa


I made this card for today's color challenge, love the colors together Creamy Caramel, White and Purely Pomegranate. I tried a new technique or at least new to me I applied a coat of Crystal Effects over the Santa image and coated it with micro beads, in real life it has almost a frosted glass look.

I love this Santa stamp, it is just a beautiful image. Well we are now back to normal after our long weekend, I am almost a little sad thought I so do enjoy sleeping in a bit......LOL!

If you would like to try this challenge you can do so here CC140. I have been getting quite a few email regarding the Holly Leaves and berry brads, they are made by Making Memories sold in a package with 24 leaves and 12 brads so enough to make 12 complete hollies. I got mine at our local craft supply store, so I'm not too sure who is carrying them.

Supplies: Santa from Stampfransico, Baroque Motifs, Weathered BG, Creamy Caramel, White and Purely Pomegranate card stock, White and Purely Pomegranate inks, micro beads, ribbon, brads, crystal effects, and dimensionals.
