So on to today's sketch...
The Santa digi image that I used can be found HERE! The "ho ho ho" sentiment is from a cheap dollar bin set that I think I picked up at Michael's. To make the belt buckle I used one of the letters that is designed to go through a ribbon from Joann's but just made sure that I covered up the letter so all you could see was the frame. The red dotted paper is from K&Co and if you look closely, you can see that I trimmed out the card with tiny strips of gold that are made from Flower Soft and come with adhesive already on them.
Four gold brads were added as accents to the four corners of the image panel and I used my Tiny Mosaic texture plate in my cuttlebug to make the belt have a leather look to it. My circle and scalloped nesties were used to fram the image.
If you look closely you can see that I added white fluff to santa's hat trim and ball and colored his glasses with a gold opaque pen. The rest of him was colored with my Copic markers. Around the beard all I did was add light shades of gray and let the white CS do the rest!
This one is going into my slowly growing collection of Christmas cards that will be sent out this year. I have so many more to do... I better be getting busy very soon!!
Have a really sweet Wednesday and be sure to visit the SSW blog to see all the other Digi Shack creations made using this week's sketch! And may your bucket overflow with sweet things all day!
