The challenge at Pikes Playground is to create a christmas themed card:
And the challenge at Christmas All Year is to use a Santa image:
I combined these two challenges using a Santa image from Doodle Dragon Studios:
The background paper is from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. It is left over from another card that I had made and I didn't want to waste it! The image is a recent freebie from Doodle Dragon Studios, coloured with copic markers and highlighted with Glossy Accents and Kindy Glitz. The stripes across the card are a deep burgundy coloured Glitter Tape from American Crafts. The sentiment is a digital image that has been cut and embossed using a Spellbinders rectangle die. I added a glittery snowflake at the top of the image to balance everything out.
