ho..ho..ho!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are having a great evening. Tonight I'd like to share with you a card I made yesterday. With all the "Christmas In July Challenges" going on I thought it would be fun to colour up this cute digital image and get ahead start on some Christmas cards.
 
 
The image was a digital freebie from Bug a Boo Stamps, and I used my Copics to colour him up . I added some "faux snow to his Santa hat as well.  The DP is from my still over flowing scrap box. I used a Spellbinders' die to cut out the image and a mat for it. I also used a small circle hand punch to add the dots around the outside of the cut out image and mat. The white trim is actually extra wide rick rack. I added to pieces of red& white striped to the top and bottom of the accent piece of card stock. I glued several bright red buttons to each side of the image and finished this card off with a hand printed sentiment and some faux stitching, both done with ultra fine tipped Sharpie markers.
 
Sending hugs your way,
Nancy
