Dear Santa... I can explain!!!

I am so glad I saw the challenge over at  Winter Wonderland, to make a 'male' Christmas card,
it reminded me that I need cards for my male relatives and friends.
This one is for my nephew.


I followed Dawny's great sketch from Papertake Weekly.How do you stick your papers on??   My new role of double sided tape is about as much use as a chocolate teapot, so this is stuck down with Pritt Stick. I thought it might warp the paper, but it looks ok so far.  I am hoping that when I come to use the card it will all still be in place.
The Pollycraft Santa was coloured with Copics. I added Flower Soft (polar white) to his beard and coat trims and a couple of small brads as buttons. The I layered him onto the card with foam pads.

Challenges I am entering...
Winter Wonderland - A Male Christmas Card
Papertake Weekly - Dawny's Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in September  (October now, I guess!!)
 Charisma Cardz - Christmas Crafting.


Digital Stamp - Pollycraft Santa.
Fa La La Stamp - Catslife Press, coloured with Copics and edged with stickles glitter.
Design Paper - K & Co, Peppermint Twist.
Polar White Flower Soft.  Small Black Brads.

That flower soft looks awesome, what a fantastic touch. Otherwise, I totally LOVE this card! The pritt stick will hold as long as it is not kept anywhere damp...
