World Card Making Day 2010 number 2

Hey Stampers,

It's still World Card Making Day and I have been busy today in my studio.  Here is another card using the Santa image from the Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set.  This is one stamp set that should be on every one's "To Buy List" for the Holiday season.  Hopefully I'll get around to using the other 5 images in the set, but right now I am stuck on Santa.

In this card I used the Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper for my focal point on the base of Real Red cardstock and I also paper pieced the same DSP on Santa's Hat.  Cherry Cobbler is the color of the red dots on the DSP but the dots are so small that you can't tell if its Real Red or Cherry Cobbler, so I chose to use Real Red for my card base and the scallop rectangle (nestabilities) .  I also used a 2-Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds on the brim and ball of the Santa hat. To finish off the card I tied a bow using Real Red Satin Ribbon and an Old Olive button and some ivory colored thread.  To color Santa's face I used a Copic marker, E25 Caribe Cocoa.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it and I hope I have inspired someone today.  Thanks for stopping by!
