Santa Santa

Guess what? I actually made a Christmas card using the traditional Christmas colors of green and red! LOL! Lately I have been drawn to very bright and cheery colors - must be all the cold weather lately. However I manged to break that habit with this card... no guarantees on future ones though! :)

Quick notes: as usual I stamped the image in black and then colored with Copic markers. I did add a bit of bling with a gold paint pen. Just a little though! I added a strategic piece of ribbon and a button (to hide an oopsie) to accent the main image and kept the rest of the layout simple. Of course I couldn't resist a bit of stitching. :)

Stamps: Spirit of Christmas Anna Wight cling set (Whipper Snapper Designs). Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip (SU!), White, Pure Poppy (PTI), embossed green (unknown). Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers, Close to Cocoa Classic. Other: Ticket Border punch (EK Success), sewing machine, white thread, sponge, gold ribbon (May Arts), hemp twine, button (PTI), Gold fine line Deco Color paint pen (Marvy Uchida).


  1. Love your card Danielle!! What a fantastic idea with the button and the ribbon - it looks like it was always meant to be there even if it is covering an 'oopsie'. Oh, and I love the stitching too :-)


Thanks for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you. :)
