TECC45 Jolly Old Elf
My card base is: Always Artichoke - Or at least I think it is. I found some paper in my stack that was also suppose to be Always Artichoke and yet it had a slightly different shade to it so I'm just guessing that what I used is the AA card stock.
I layered some Cool Carribean (a retired color that I miss) along with some designer paper by Basic Gray.
I stamped my Santa on Whisper White card stock and colored him with Prisma Color Pencils. I cut out the hat and added white liquid applique and a generous sprinkling of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. The star was colored with a Yellow Spica Glitter Pen. The hat is raised up on the image with foam mounting tape.
I mounted him to an oval of white edged with Cool Carribean ink and then layered to a larger scallop oval of Always Artichoke that I pierced with the Crafters Tool Kit. I added a piece of Cranberry Crisp (retired SU) and an embossed border of Whisper White. I stamped my sentiment (Perfect Ending) with Cranberry Crisp ink. I added three 1/2" circles of Cranberry Crisp cs along with three green Christmas Tree brads (Making Memories) and tied a piece of Artichoke Grosgrain ribbon around the Cranberry piece of card stock.
Yet another Christmas card done!
