Christmas Card Challenges - #10


I can't believe it's already time for another Christmas Card Challenge. Where does the time go? Yikes. (For me the week was a blur thanks to a head cold that just really put a kink in my hose. I'm still not happy about it, if you can't tell.)

We have a Photo Inspiration challenge to give us a jump start this time.

I broke out my trusty Silhouette to cut a cute black Santa silhouette I had used for a project last year and I still just love it.

My background panel is covered (mostly) in Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I flicked a few water droplets on it just because I could, but not really very many. I matted it with After Midnight MFT cardstock and stamped the sentiment from MFT's Jingle All The Way stamp set. Since my Santa came down over my sentiment (oops.) and I wasn't in the mood to cut another one, I layered him in place and stamped with Versa Mark so I could white emboss the partial sentiment. Then it was just a matter of lining it all back up when I glued him down. A few clear sequins are the only embellies I used for this one.
I'm also playing along with Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges - "Frame It" challenge, Merry Monday Christmas Challenges - "Santa" challenge, and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - "Vintage or Anything Goes" challenge.
