Shhhhhh ... Santa is Coming

Isn't he the cutest Santa? This is an Stampendous stamp called Secret Santa. I coloured him in with my Bic markers and used white flocking powder for his beard, mustache and hair. For the trim on his suit, I used Liquid Applique.  It was the first time I used this and it won't be the last because I love the effect of it. It doesn't look like much when you first put it on, but when you heat it up, it bubbles and adds dimension to the image. The green cardstock is from Paper Studio. The Santa cardstock is from the Old World Winter matstack also from Paper Studio. I finished off the card with some ribbon and some Vintage Berries card candy.

I had a perfectly cut strip of the Santa cardstock left, so I used it on the inside of the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for taking the time to comment. I do love hearing from you :)

Hugs,
Lena
