Santa Claus

Just one more sleep and this jolly fellow should be making his way around the globe delivering his parcels to those of you who have been good.  This is another four square Christmas card I've made a batch of using Santa gift tags from Poundland as the main topper.  The tag was chopped down, layered up and the Santa character reattached using more foam pads.

The printed background papers for the small squares and the large background layers are from Kanban and the Papeterie.  Once again left over white card was decorated to make the small striped squares.  They were stamped with the Hero Arts canvas stripe stamp in majestic blue versafine ink and then over stamped using a Stampin' up snowflake cluster stamp using their riding hood red ink before being embossed using a random dot embossing folder.

Just a few extra embellishments for this one with thread wrapped around the small squares, crystal dot peel offs, a bow and the star corner spots are stamped using a small stamp from the Stampin' up Delightful Ornaments set and Stampendous red tinsel embossing powder.

Off to do some final preparations before tomorrow.  Everything may not be as organised and spic and span as I'd like it to be but we're warm, dry, have plenty to eat, with gifts under the tree and beautiful cards from friends and family on display. 

Hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow whatever you do and whoever you share it with.

Thanks for reading
