Hello everybody! Can you believe it's the last day of July? Time flies by so fast, so I've actually made a few Christmas cards already. When I was choosing which stamp I wanted to use today, I just fell in love with this whimsical, Santa on Skates. I already had in mind which patterned papers I wanted to use and visualized Santa colored pink and green. Let me show you my finished card and then I'll give you some more details.
I used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to color in Santa's face, suit and leggings. I covered his beard, hair and all of the fur with white glitter glue and sprinkled it with ultra fine glitter, then added gold glitter glue to his belt buckle. I cut out the image and chalked the edges with pink, then matted it with some green patterned paper and distressed the edges. The big bow is pinkish-white and I thought it was the perfect finishing touch. Here is a close-up of my card:
Here's one more:
The two sentiments can be found here and here. I also used chalk on them ~ one with pink and the other with green and attached them on angles with pop dots. I thought this went along with the whimsical look of Santa on Skates. I often mix it up too and add some really pretty thing (like this glittery bow) to a whimsical card. It's just something that I like to do.
How about you? Have you made any Christmas cards yet? I really had fun with this one. Thanks for stopping by!
