CHRISTMAS CRAFTS ALL YEAR ROUND -- SANTA!!!

Hey ya'll; how's it going?  I'm here today to let you know that it's December  (WHAT?!?!?!?), and that means a new challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round.  This time, we want to see Santa on your projects.  I know at this time of year, we are ALL looking for the Jolly Elf, aren't we?  ;)




I found him!  And he's got a sack full of goodies too!  YAY!  This version of Santa is oldworldsanta6 from Bugaboo, but I can't find him in the store ATM.  I just love the look of this image, with his big flowing coat!  I colored him using my alcohol markers in traditional red and green shades, and for the white parts of his coat and hat, I added Stickles.  His beard was given some shading using very light warm gray markers.  I don't remember the paper pad the patterned paper comes from (sorry!), but the card stock is all Recollections.  The sentiment is from Christmas Sentiments 1 from Sizzix.  I cut each word 4 times and glued them together for added dimension.  The top layer was coated with the same Stickles that I used on the image.  This card is super sparkly in real life, but of course the photo shows none of it.
