Santa Card

I'm lucky enough to have a friend in the US who will get things for me and ship them over, so a couple of days ago I received some of the new Christmas stamp sets that were launched by Stampers Anonymous at a stamping convention in California last weekend. This is their first outing... I love the Santa image!

The card blank was a design I created and cut on the Cricut using the Sure Cuts a Lot progam. The main image was stamped in Archival Black ink and then masked with a second copy stamped onto scrap paper and cut out. The snow was stamped and embossed with white powder and then Broken China and Faded Jeans inks were applied to the rest of the card. Finally the main image was coloured with distress inks/water brush and Marvy pens and Stickles glitter glue. I hope you like it! Click on the image for a larger view.
