Santa??


I made a few cards of this design for my Christmas stash of cards for hospitalized kids. Hopefully they'll be smiling when they see Santa stuck in the chimney! LOL
This card began with the printed circle sentiment I found in my box of unfinished doo-dads and I pinned a card on Pinterest with this clever design and had to CASE it. The boots were done with a SU! heart punch, while the "fur" was done with a retired SU! Boho Blossom punch. The chimney was a piece of rose-red cardstock, which was embossed with a TH bricked ef, then sponged with white craft ink to look like real bricks. The background was embossed with a SU! softly fallen ef, and the sentiment circle was matted with emerald envy and red layers done with SP circle and scalloped circle dies. I added a die-cut Lawn Fawn snowflake to the center with a silver sticker in the center.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

I had some issues with the computer earlier this morning, and hopefully I'll be able to make it back again soon! If not, you'll know my PC quietly died :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Friday and a good weekend as well!

Certainly made me smile. What a brilliant idea to use a heart shape for his boots as it has worked a treat. Love the brick effect on the chimney too. Looks most authentic. Thankyou for sharing with us at Perfectly Created Chaos. hugs ValeryAnne (DT).

I am feeling a bit upside down just like this Santa. He sure did make me smile.

A clever use of the punches to create the shapes, and totally adorable. Some child is going to grin so big when this one is opened! It will definitely brighten a hospital stay. TFS
