First One for Christmas 2016


glitter shot


I hope you're enjoying the holiday season. I like to do a bit of Christmassy crafting actually AT Christmas, so here's my first card for next Christmas. 

I used a pre-coloured image from Debbi Moore Santa Claus CD and cropped most of it away to leave just the lower leg and feet. Then I cut the hohoho on the Silhouette cutter. I added glitter to the fur, a scrap of patterned paper, embossed the card base and added a brad. 

I'd like to enter:
CD Sunday  cool yule
Eureka  Santa 
Christmas at Sweet Stampin  Father Christmas 
The Male Room  Christmas

  13. I tend to forget about the possibility to crop images. Love what you did here, keeping only Santa's feet. And a bit of sparkle does look great on Christmas cards. Fun design!
